My name is Walker & marijuana was my problem. I had a good job paying $13 an hour, but it drug tested, and I had my own place at the time. I used to spend my $600 checks on weed, 3 or 4 ounces at a time. I was drug tested at my job and was fired. I was so upset I just bought more and more weed til I had no money and lost my place. I moved in with a friend and I wanted to get high so bad I started selling my clothes and electronics just so I could smoke weed. I was on probation at the time and I failed drug test after drug test for 7 months straight. I ended up going to jail. When I went to court they offered me rehab or 6 months in jail and I chose rehab, thinking I can just slide by in there. Well I get here and through the first month I had the mind set of “smoke again when I get out”. I started going to these classes they had set up and I heard some words that rang true to me and it started to hit me. If I do the same thing when I get out will it be any different? Then I met some good people here that had their plan set and they gave me advice, good advice at that. So after about my third month I started to pray to God to get me out of this mindset. Not even two weeks later they gave me the news “we’re sending you to our best job”. Everything seemed to be coming together and I haven’t thought about weed in a month, and I was so happy that for once I was focused on doing good for me. By my 6 month I’ve got a great job, I’ve got a plan for when I get out and a new mind set. I’ve gained so many old relationships I had lost, including family, friends and most importantly God! Now for anyone looking to turn their selves around and to be a new person and drop the past, Safe Harbor is the place to go . They give you these insightful classes that give you a look at other lives and mistakes, but more importantly the things you can do to fix them and how to mend them . They teach you to manage money and help you set up a bank account. This place is amazing and has so much to offer for someone looking for the right answers. They have staff who constantly seek to help you in every aspect of your life. I’ve worked this program from head to toe and I can assure you that if you work this program not only will you be a productive member of society again, but you’ll leave a whole new person with so many things you can take to others to help them. Safe Harbor of Nashville has given me a new sense of direction. I no longer feel the need to get high . All I do I want to succeed from here on out . They gave me a great job and advice I’ll take with me for the rest of my life. I cannot thank Safe Harbor enough for what they did, and a big shout out to Travis for helping me every step.
We want to give all praise a glory to our great Lord & Savoir! To watch and be a partaker in just how the Holy Spirit is moving at Safe Harbor Nashville is amazing!

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!
