    Safe Harbor      

Founded in 1991 by Susan and Bob Hamer, a passionate couple dedicated to creating a warm and nurturing environment, Safe Harbor’s mission is to provide shelter and therapeutic services to children any age under 18 who’ve been abused, abandoned or neglected; who are homeless or have run away from home; or who are otherwise at risk or feel threatened.

Safe Habor Children's Center HomeDuring the center’s 24 years, more than 4,000 children have sought refuge at Safe Harbor for at least one night. During 2011, more than 226 children and families were recipients of services provided by Safe Harbor.

The Safe Harbor Children’s Center is a spacious home with room for engaging play, quiet study, and intellectual and emotional development. The two-story dwelling includes a living and dining room, kitchen, laundry area, family visitation area, activity center, and administrative offices. The grounds feature a large deck ideal for group gatherings, plus space for outdoor play. The center’s new Hamer House facility provides additional residential and non-residential services.

Our community’s home for children in need of a safe place, Safe Harbor is governed by a volunteer board of directors and receives support from the Safe Harbor Auxiliary. A private, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, Safe Harbor is licensed by the Georgia Department of Human Resources’ Childcare Licensing Division and receives funds to support its mission from state and federal grants and local fundraising events.
