Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Homeless & Housing, Homeless Shelters

Mission: Soul’s Harbor is neither a rehabilitation facility nor a true homeless shelter. Soul’s Harbor could be categorized as a recovery home where men can learn tools to fight their addiction issues, or life affecting issues and live in a clean, sober and functional environment each day.

Results: Half of our men that currently reside at Soul's Harbor have 1 year or more of clean / sober time

Target demographics: Homeless Male Population in the Dallas / Forth Worth area from age 18 to 65

Geographic areas served: Dallas, Ellis, Tarrant, Kaufman, Rockwell, Collin and Tarrant county

Programs: We have 2 programs - our intense "in house" 6 month substance abuse recovery program and our work therapy program that gets the resident ready for work outside Soul's Harbor when he leaves.

Donor

Rating: 5

Just donated a queen mattress/box spring, dresser, 2 large bags of clothes, a box of men's suits, a dining room table with 2 chairs, a living room table with HEII heavy glass top, dinner plates with drinking glasses, & a 45 inch retro flat screen tv.
The 2 dudes- Chaz & Edward were expedient, careful, & requested NO money- shoot, they wouldn't even take the sodas I offered to cool down from working in Texas heat.
Chaz blew my mind when he lifted & carried the glass table top- solo from my second floor apartment to their truck. HOLY CRAP...Bravo!
Thank you Brent, for what you devote of your life & energy to this place & thank you/good luck to all the MEN who are trying to pull their sh!t together & enter back into Sobriety.

Ps. If you have things that they refuse to take, it may be because they are overstocked on those things, do not sell those things, they may not be in a usable/sellable condition, or just have no demand for that stuff.
I've seen their "hold area" for donated items. It's like most thrift shoppes- they do have a limit on space/need.
