Providing a lifeline to victims of child abuse and neglect
Providing a lifeline to victims of child abuse and neglect.
Lighting the Way
“LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE SO THAT OTHERS CAN SEE THEIR WAY OUT OF THE DARK.”
Everyday children in our community suffer unbearable physical, mental, and sexual abuse.
Over 3,700 children are involved in child abuse and neglect investigations in Allegan County each year. Since 1983, Safe Harbor has been providing a lifeline to child victims of abuse and is the only organization in the community able to provide all of these services under one-roof at no cost to the victims or their families. By partnering with law enforcement, child protective services, the prosecuting attorney’s office, and medical providers, we have been able to offer child victims the hope, help, and healing they deserve. Each year we provide forensic interviews, medical examinations, counseling, and court advocacy to over 360 children. The current physical structure of our building does not allow for us to provide many essential tasks simultaneously and without struggle.
Changes to Safe Harbor’s facility are necessary for the success of our organization, and more importantly for the health of the children and families in our community. Together we can light the way to a brighter future for Safe Harbor and the children of Allegan County and surrounding communities.
