So grateful for the wonderful Traverse City West Senior High School (TCAPS) Honors Society students. They have been helping with biweekly deep cleans of our kitchen for the last year. They are some hard workers and do a fabulous job. We love having our community youth help at the shelter. THANK YOU!

Safe shelter for the homeless
About Safe Harbor
Food, Shelter, Hope
Dedicated to the preservation of the physical health and spiritual welfare of adults experiencing homelessness, a primary goal of Safe Harbor is to offer food, shelter, and hope for our guests.
We operate a non-profit, volunteer-run Seasonal Emergency Shelter and a year-round Housing & Human Services Resource Center. As part of the Continuum of Care, we also focus on community partnerships in order to better collaborate on long-term solutions to ending homelessness in our region.
Since 2004, thousands of volunteers have given their time and love to help others in their community through Safe Harbor. We operate from November through April to keep those experiencing homelessness safe from the winter elements. The more you learn about our people, our guests and our mission, the more you’ll want to join us.
Safe Harbor is 100% volunteer-operated. This means your donation goes directly to the shelter functions. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Safe Harbor’s effort.
