Safe Harbor Holiday Coupon Card
Congratulations to our ARISE program graduates!
We are very excited to congratulate the first graduating class of our new ARISE program, who were recognized in a commencement ceremony on Monday night.
These eleven hardworking men and women completed six weeks of daily classes (66 classes in total) as well as daily morning/evening meetings and community service hours.
Thank you so much to all of the family members, friends, mentors and community members that came down on Monday to show support for our residents, and to Lafayette College including our ceremony as an event in their annual Hunger and Homelessness Week. We were so grateful to have you all be a part of this special day!
This week we started our second round of classes and are looking forward to recognizing our second graduating class in five weeks.
Introducing the ARISE Program
Safe Harbor Easton is thrilled to announce the successful launch of our new ARISE program. This key components of this program are Accountability, Recovery, Initiative, Self-sustainability, and Education.
ARISE is comprised of three phases that our residents must progress through before transitioning out of Safe Harbor and back into society.
Phase 1 : six weeks of intensive, foundation-building classes and workshops led by both staff members and volunteer providers. All new residents will attend these classes, which are held three times a day Monday through Friday, and include: yoga, core skills, budgeting, life skills, breathing, cooking/nutrition, principles of recovery/re-entry, men’s/women’s group, community engagement, and group self-discovery sessions. Admissions to Phase 1 are rolling, and graduation to Phase 2 is determined by the resident’s case manager after all of the classes are completed or made up via alternative assignments.
Phase 2: resume-building, employment searching, applying for housing and supportive services with case management
Phase 3: saving money and searching for housing with case management
In addition to Phase 1 classes, all of our residents attend daily morning and evening meetings in which cares and concerns are expressed, house updates are given, and residents get to share their plans for the day and how their day went. Each morning meeting begins with a reading and a short, guided meditation to get everyone started on the right foot!
