Little Rock’s Spring Revival  April 1 – 5, 2019.

SHLR would like to thank Pastor Harris for such a great word from God. He blessed all of us!

You are welcome here anytime! Thank you Pastor Harris.


“Pastor Hill came and closed revival out just right. He came to let us know that God said that we are great no matter what any one says. We did what God called us to do and went forth with baptism. Our very own Reliable Coordinator, Robert Poulston, was first, plus many more guys.

Rob I love you and congratulations. Now lets go out and take back the inner cities as men of God!” – Pastor Eric Alexander

It was not even class time yet and these guys were already reading & studying their bibles

James Staffan leading praise & worship this morning in Little Rock

February Celebrate Sunday, Staff of the month Bobby Wall, Student of the month Tim Maloney, Reliable of the month Tyson Norswortthy, and for the 3rd month in a row; Dorm of the month-Dorm 3.

The guys enjoyed ice cream and cake this evening during Celebarte Sunday

Morning excersise class. Great hiking trails at the Little Rock Audubon Society this morning. (conveniently located blocks from our ministry)

Some colored pencils, markers, construction paper is all it takes a grown man to melt to a 10 year old again.(in a good way).

Sunday night Church Service 12/30/2018 & Reliable Meeting

“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 win 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

Safe Harbor of Little Rock staff got an early 3 a.m. start on Christmas morning. The clients got eggs, bacon, sausage, grits, hash browns, pancakes, biscuits & gravy, orange juice and coffee. Pretty sure Denny’s Grand Slam doesn’t give all that! It was a great morning to be able to serve!!!

2017 Battle in the Saddle – Race for the Homeless

Jan 20 – 22, 2017 Safe Harbor Battle in the Saddle took over Tunica, MS. This was our 3rd year in Tunica and the show proved to be a huge blessing. We had over 1000 entries from contestants all over the southeast, Texas, Oklahoma, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri & Indiana. Along with the great added money that was made possible by our sponsors, we also hosted the KK Productions Run for Vegas. This is a race for girls 16 years & under to qualify for their shot to run at the prestigious finals held in Las Vegas.

We are excited at the opportunities that will come from this race. As we tell our contestants, they are helping to change lives one run at a time. Thank you to all who have and who continue to support Safe Harbor!

At Safe Harbor, we consider it a privilege to serve the men and women in our care. These participants have come to us from living in the streets or ex-offenders that needed somewhere to go. We strive to provide them with so much more than food and shelter—we strive to make a lasting difference through group and pastoral counseling, life building classes, and finding them permanent employment which provides stability once they leave our care.
Would you consider partnering with us to make a lasting impact? We appreciate your support and pray that God will bless you as you have blessed!
