Safe Harbor Easton is a program-driven homeless shelter for single men and women. It is also a drop-in program for low-income adults, particularly those who have difficulty with the tasks of daily life.
OUR MISSION: to foster lifelong success and stability in homeless men and women by addressing the root causes of their homelessness.
OUR BELIEF: Safe Harbor believes that in building lifelong success, a stable foundation comes first and foremost. For this reason, Safe Harbor’s programming and individualized approach to case management integrated restorative practices with a holistic view of self-recovery.
ARISE HOMELESS SHELTER: Housed in a two-story building at 536 Bushkill Drive in Easton, the shelter has the capacity to house 22 men and 18 women overnight. Last year, we housed 168 individuals in our program-based shelter. We are currently undergoing an expansion project that will bring our total bed count to 50 beds, and had already created a brand-new classroom for our Phase 1 programming.
DAY PROGRAM: Safe Harbor also operates a Daytime Drop-In Program that is open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Last year we served over 53,000 meals between the day program and Safe Harbor residents. We offer all members of the day program access to basic needs services, case management, and referrals to other community services and organizations.
EASTON’S WINTER SHELTER: Safe Harbor serves as Easton’s emergency winter shelter. From December 1 to March 31, we partner with Greater Shiloh Church to provide nightly shelter from the elements to our homeless. This is made possible by support from the City of Easton and private foundations. Last year, our winter shelter provided emergency winter shelter to 127 unduplicated individuals. In additional to overnight shelter, we enact Code Blue shelter 24/7 when conditions necessitate.
