Safe Harbor of Chester County

Providing shelter and encouragement for the homeless.

News Flash
In compliance with Chester County´s Decade to Doorways initiative, Safe Harbor´s procedure for providing beds to single homeless men and single homeless women has changed. Beginning July 1, 2013 everyone seeking a bed at our shelter MUST call Connect Points at 1-800-935-3181.
There are no exceptions.

Our mission

Safe Harbor's goal goes beyond just feeding the homeless and providing shelter. We seek to understand each person's background, define short-term action plans designed to address their problems & needs, and monitor their progress. Our goal is to help rebuild lives and life skills, reestablish self-esteem, and help people overcome the issues that prevent them from leading independent, productive lives.

Your donation helps provide safe housing, nourishing food, and encouragement for the homeless. For those who have nowhere else to go, your gift can help rebuild lives.

We urgently need your support. Please help by donating what you can.
