Low-income single moms severely lacking in functional life skills, employment, health care, and support systems are a growing population in Anaheim. Many have histories of domestic abuse, homelessness, or addiction. They are rooted in generations of poverty, and will pass the same problems along to their children---unless we provide alternate pathways to a better future.
In order to do that, My Safe Harbor exists as a faith-based, nonprofit to empower single mothers with new:
Resources – life skills for parenting, home management, education and the workplace. Refer for counseling, housing and financial assistance and access to community advocates.
Relationships – long-term peer and mentor support systems that model and foster healthy choices and promote involvement in a faith community.
Responsibilities – Proactive leadership in their families, functioning as productive citizens in the community, and living a life of integrity and self-esteem.
By planting the seeds of self-reliance and providing long term support, this disastrous cycle can be broken and replaced with healthy, hopeful families and a stronger, safer community.
