Mission: Investing in mothers is at the heart of the mission of My Safe Harbor. We do not provide crisis intervention. Instead, we provide a place for the "next step" for mothers who have weathered a crisis and are ready to do the long, hard work of changing their lives and the lives of their children. At MSH, we are literally mothering mothers -- many of whom have had little or no access to adequate role models. Our programs build trusting relationships and equip mothers with real, life changing tools that empower honest personal assessment and the dignity of self-reliance.
Target demographics: build strong families and break generational cycles of poverty and dysfunction
Direct beneficiaries per year: 128 mothers with 320 children and have graduated 7 cohorts of the Strong Families Institute
Geographic areas served: Long term support for low income mothers committed to changing their lives and the lives of their children.
Programs: The Mothers Clubs and Electives introduce women to the MSH culture, present new opportunities and begin the relationship building process. Enrichment Electives are 2-6 weeks sessions that are more in-depth and require pre-registration. Topics range from crocheting and cooking to computers and parenting. and there are expectations for attendance and commitment. The Strong Families Institute (SFI) is our intensive, year-long program where the real work of change begins. It It offers over 100 class hours over 32 weeks for in-depth information, participation and evaluation. Go to our website for more information.

My Safe Harbor has one of the most unique programs in Orange County for underprivileged, sometimes undereducated, single mothers who are struggling. After preparing for the year long program through attendance at Mother's Club, these mothers are ready to work very hard to look at how they are interacting and communicating with their family members, how they were parented and how they are currently parenting, how they handle their finances, and taking a good long look at their heart/soul/mind. The graduates come back (part of the requirements of the program is to give back) and help the new cohort prepare for the year long journey. It is a truly transforming program with many alumni now. We need volunteers and donations. As a Board member for a few years, I am proud to ask. It is a program very worth supporting!!
