I remembered the day when my life changed completely, I was broken into so many pieces, I was afraid of even my own shadow. Someone talked to me about this Safe Heaven called My Safe Harbor.
I knew if I wanted positive changes I needed to change myself, I told myself to at least give it a try, so I did!
I participated in PEP classes, to empower myself as a victim of Domestic Violence.
I also graduated from "The Strong Families Institute."
After that my fears turned into blessings!
I am forever grateful to My Safe Harbor, Becky Alhberg and it's entire staff for showing me that there was Hope.
My Safe Harbor changes lives. It is a great place for women to get valuable skills for parenting.
My Safe Harbor has made an important contribution to strengthening families in Anaheim. I have had many students in my ESL class participate in the programs and they find a safe place to learn skills that benefit themselves as well as their children. My Safe Harbor educates mothers over a wide spectrum of relevant topics. This is an organization that has had many successes in equipping women to change their lives.
So great to see all the work MSH is doing in my community. I've seen huge transformations in the lives of single moms.
It is great to find an organization that makes a permanent positive change in the lives it influences. My Safe Harbor is an asset to its community and I look forward to continued results. I'm picky about where I give, My Safe Harbor passes the test.
I have been with them since the beginning and am always encouraged to see the change in the families lives.
The long term work My Safe Harbor does with these mothers is changing their lives and the lives of their children. Amazing experience to be a volunteer.
The people are what make this non-profit, GreatNonprofits-worthy!
This is one of the most unique non profits in California. No other agency has this type of tier service delivery that allows clients a range of services. The year long program is affordable, well structured, and life changing for participants. Strong leadership at the top filters down in this agency. Wonderful programming by wonderful people.
This organization is transforming the lives of single moms in Anaheim, CA. Moms who have been thru their programs are getting involved in their local schools, changing the lives of their children, and positively affecting their neighborhoods. Lots of non-profits work with kids, how many work with their moms?
The vast majority of family social service agencies in Anaheim are focused on crisis intervention or other short-term projects. My Safe Harbor, however, occupies a special niche as it works with single moms over the long haul through electives, Mother's Clubs, Strong Families Institute and additional programs for alumni. My Safe Harbor empowers and equips these women to make changes in their own lives as well as their children's lives; it also expects women to participate both through finances and volunteer work in this challenging growth process.
I support My Safe Harbor financially and in as many other ways as possible; I encourage you to do the same. Your gifts will be carefully managed and put to the best possible use!
This nonprofit helps families in need. I see the children and the women, and how they are being helped.
I love working at my safe harbor. They're serving a critical need in our community (serving single moms) and they're really effective at it!
I had the opportunity to serve as a visitor, mentor, elective facilitator and ultimately a donor for this wonderful organization. I observed first-hand, the journeys these women embarked upon. It was heartwarming to see how they gathered together, welcomed new members into the good, and encouraged and supported each other.
Most importantly, it was the increased faith, knowledge, and confidence that were their building blocks. The program structure and resources MSH offers women allows them to grow personally, professionally, and spiritually
It's a beautiful transition that begins with trepidation and ends in confidence. And the most amazing part is that the graduates become the volunteers, facilitators, and mentors.
This is a wonderful program that needs to grow and be replicated in every community. Stop by for a visit and see for yourself.
This is a wonderful organization. They truly care for each of the women they serve and treat then like family. I had a great experience volunteering for them and plan to continue my involvement. I have seen many women's lives (and their children's) dramatically changed through this organization.
This organizatin is doing wonderful work with single mothers in the Anaheim, CA area. Children of single mothers represent the highest percentage of gang members, and My Safe Harbor is helping to reduce gang membership by providing single moms with skills and attitudes to be better parents. They hold Mother's Clubs (to get women together to learn skills and crafts), Electives (to teach specific skills), and the Stong Families Institute, which is a certificate program that deal with all elements of raising a family. In just three years, they have already graduated 22 women from SFI. These graduates have then been able to mentor following classes. All in all, over 150 women and 300 children have been positively affected by the programs of My Safe Harbor.
