Safety is Safe Harbor Shelter’s number one priority. Our emergency shelters is a place for victims of domestic violence who have limited or no resources and are experiencing violence at the hands of an intimate partner.

When a resident enters the shelter an initial intake is completed.

The resident then meets with the Case Manager who will assist them with the process of opening a case for financial assistance with the Department of Social Services.

The next are of discuss will be whether the resident wishes to petition the courts for an order of protection, child custody, etc.

The Case manager will then refer clients to appropriate resources within SCCADV for themselves and their children. Since every case is unique, the needs of each client are assessed on an individual basis. Housing needs are also addressed by the Case Manager.

Parenting groups are held on a weekly basis, individual and group counseling services are provided to adult residents and children.

A monthly group meeting is held with a supervising physician and a medical resident to disucss clients’ medical concerns.

Appointments are made with the Director of Vocational Services who will assess clients’ works skills and experience for job placements. Computer classes are also offered.

At Safe Harbor, we provide a safe and supportive environment and assist in developing short and long term goals so residents can go out on their own into homes without violence.
