Souls Harbor was originally founded in 1989 as a homeless shelter for men in need of housing and food. In 2015, we became a refuge for long-term support.
Souls Harbor is now a transitional community, providing shelter and care for men in recovery. In addition to a safe place to live, we provide food, clothing, educational opportunities, and case management. Residents are responsible for a shared housing expense of $50 per week, half of which is returned to them upon completion through graduation of the program. Each resident is responsible for assisting with grounds maintenance, basic upkeep, gardening, and various tasks around our facilities. We refer to this contribution as “Sweat Equity”; every resident is required to participate.
We consider ourselves a safe community, where we give our residents a hand up, not a hand out. In order to gain a true foundation for recovery, our graduates stay at Souls Harbor for four months to one year.
Our primary focus is reaching men who have struggled with homelessness, drug addiction, mental illness and substance abuse through long-term transitional housing.
