Safe Harbor says ‘thanks!’

By From page A6 | January 02, 2014

I would like to express my gratitude to community businesses and volunteers who donated goods and services to Safe Harbor Crisis House throughout the year. Their time and care to help us maintain our facility and provide food directly contributes to the safety and recovery of the many mental health clients we serve.

Dan Garrett and Garrett Landscaping of Davis donated plants, hardscape and labor for the rehabilitation of our courtyard garden. It has become a favorite retreat for clients and their families and friends to gather.

Aaron Weiss of Roofmasters in Vacaville provided gutter cleaning and roof repair so that our clients will stay warm and dry this winter. George Adams of Vacaville Floors gave us a new floor for our staff office, which has been in need of repair. Staff appreciates the comfortable space for our busy work days.

Brooks Painting donated an extensive interior painting that has brightened up the entire facility. The students of the Community Resource Center at UC Davis spent a weekend day scrubbing our kitchen and cars and making them sparkle. Woodland United Methodist Church brings a once-a-month lunch for clients and staff. The food is delicious and contributes a festive feeling to our mealtime.

And thank you to the angels who bring us Nugget Bakery treats weekly. Safe Harbor is grateful for all the donations and support that are provided to us each year from business, civic groups and individuals.

Safe Harbor is a 24-hour, 14-bed, short-term crisis facility. Our mission is to offer effective treatment for stabilization to individuals who suffer from chronic mental illness in a residential setting. We work to provide compassionate and effective treatment for people who suffer from chronic and severe mental illness.

We are truly fortunate to be located in Yolo County with its many community supports!

Program director, Safe Harbor Crisis House, Woodland
