July 4th Celebration in Little Rock
Men having a dress rehearsal with their July 4th outfits on!!! Safe Harbor Little Rock is having a fireworks show Thurs night at dusk
Testimony Tuesday: Meet Gerry Thacker "Hello, my name is Gerry Thacker. I entered this program on February 20, 2019 from prison. I did 8 1/2 months this time. When I came to Safe Harbor I had to learn how to live without drugs and the lifestyle that I had lived for so long. I have been here for nearly five months because I don't feel like I am ready to go back out into the world. Because the structure and the program that they have here, it's been hard not to go back home to my family and kids. I don't feel that I am ready yet. This is the longest that I have been out of prison in three years and I have begun to deal with the things that has happened in my life, like losing my dad. That is what contributed to me using drugs. This place has taught me how to live life and overcome some obstacles in my life, and gave me the structure that I need in my life. I am very thankful that Safe Harbor has given me the chance to do that."

“I was walking by Dorm 3 the other evening and the door was closed... Instant red flag! I walked in and found the guys circled up and praying over the pizza they won as Dorm of the Month. They didn’t wi because one or two people were bossy, they won out of group unity. That is the same unity that I just saw displayed before me, gathered together in Christ’ name. Moments like that make this job the best job ever. May we all look forward to those “worth it” moments in 2019.” - James Staffan

“Sitting at the Memphis Airport waiting for my flight to Washington, D.C. to represent Safe Harbor at a Conference on the Opioid Epidemic that is ravaging our country. This is an extreme “Honor” to have been invited by the White House to attend this Conference and cause the “Light” to shine a little brighter upon this great company that we get to serve God in and through. My thought of the day is: “ Remain humble and thankful because humility and thankfulness prepares you for honors. Pride and Arrogance prepares us for destruction and falls. We have the privilege to choose the path we walk. We really never know everything God is working out and preparing for us. Choose God today....” Safe Travels Pastor Ron
