Many Thanks to Foothills Community Church

August 30, 2011

Safe Harbor wants to extend a special thanks to Foothills Community Church in Seneca for choosing Safe Harbor to be part of their 2011 “Project Reach” initiative!  In one short weekend, this a group of 20 volunteers from the church were able to complete an incredible amount of improvement projects at our Safe Harbor shelter in Anderson, including:

We are deeply grateful to Foothills Community Church for the generosity, time, and talents that they have shared with Safe Harbor through their “Project Reach” efforts.  Thank you for making a difference in the lives of the those whom we serve each day!

I am a survivor of domestic violence.


“I didn’t know that I was being abused...

I am a survivor of domestic violence.


“I didn’t know that I was being abused because my definition of abuse looked different. My husband pushed me, but most of my suffering was verbal and psychological. I left my husband to protect our young daughter. Almost immediately I felt the weight of his oppression begin to lift. I could see a difference in my daughter as well. Then he broke into my home and assaulted me in-front of her.

I sought help and was led to Safe Harbor. My daughter and I are in counseling now. I am sorting out the mess that abuse has caused. I am finding my voice and seeking opportunities to grow and better my life as well as my daughter's. She will gauge her self-worth from my own self-worth. I must show her that she deserves the best, by expecting the best for myself.

Many years I suffered in silence. By telling my story and being honest with friends and family, I am taking control of my life again.”

- Beth
