STRONG MOTHERS STRONG FAMILIES
Mothers are the culture creators within their families and in Anaheim, 21% of households are female-only led. My Safe Harbor believes a solution to the problems facing so many of our neighborhood families is found in strong mothers
PATHWAY TO HOPE
"My Safe Harbor gave me the tools I lacked as a mother and helped me to be honest with myself in all areas of my life. I learned to attentively listen to my kids, participate in their interests, and create a safe environment for them to express themselves. By establishing effective and assertive communication in a kind, loving way, I was able to open the door to a new beginning. I was able to restore my relationship with my kids and my partner. I learned to deal with my problems in different ways as well as to establish healthy boundaries and forgive myself. This gave me back my self-esteem and my sense of worth as a woman and a mother. I learned to fully trust God and understand how He uses every situation for good. God has always held my hand through this, it was just hard for me to understand his plan during the difficult times. I now enjoy my babies. I love to hear what is on their minds. I enjoy encouraging them in their interests and lives. I have learned to the present moment with my kids and partner."

Strong Families Institute Graduates
That’s 235 mothers who are taking their families, their relationships & their communities back. These newly inspired women are now PTA members, school volunteers, community service leaders, human services workers, community mobilizers, church leaders, life coaches, and SFI Facilitators.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of My Safe Harbor. Since the beginning our volunteers have served in child care, teaching, building maintenance, program development, data management, curriculum development, special events, and trainings that saved the organization anywhere from $35,000 – $50,000 annually. When people ask how we do the work we do on the budget we have...amazing volunteers.
