Who We Are
Safe Harbor Children’s Advocacy Center is a nationally accredited, nonprofit organization that provides children with hope and healing through an array of services at no cost to the victims or their families. We provide a place where children are heard, where children are healed in Allegan, Barry, and Van Buren Counties. Our services start with prevention then intervention and treatment. Our centralized, welcoming environment allows us to provide child friendly prevention education, forensic interviews, counseling, medical evaluations, victim advocacy, court advocacy, and adult trainings. From a child’s initial disclosure to their last day of counseling, Safe Harbor guides children through their journey of healing.
We have 4 key values that we believe support our vision:
Children have the right to be heard, nurtured, protected, and supported.
Education is essential to prevent child abuse and neglect.
Child abuse affects the entire community and thus requires the entire community to eradicate it.
Dedicated employees and volunteers are valued and are the key to our success.

Pinwheel Pathway Sponsorship
Safe Harbor CAC is grateful to announce that we will be working with Leslie from the Laffing Glass Art Gallery in Saugatuck. We invite you to be a part of a very special commemorative opportunity by purchasing a handmade glass pinwheel. The pinwheels will be installed at our new building. When complete, the handmade glass pinwheels will line the pathway from the parking lot to the entrance of the building, helping children know they are headed on a path of hope and healing.
Since 1983, Safe Harbor has been the only organization providing a lifeline to victims of child abuse and neglect in the Allegan County Community. All Safe Harbor’s services are available in one location and are free of charge to child victims and their families.
Now is your chance to support Safe Harbor CAC with a donation that will last a lifetime.
We need your help to create this pinwheel pathway. Will you sponsor a pinwheel to Light the Way to hope and healing for the children in our community?
