The focus of Safe Harbor’s Resource Department is education and prevention. The goal of prevention is teaching, training and/or supporting parents, and others, to provide a means to identify at-risk behaviors before they become a life-threatening problem.

The best deterrent to family heartache is a well informed parent, and that extends to a well-informed teacher, pastor, law or medical professional, and the general public. Our goal at Safe Harbor is to provide current and verified information about youth culture through presentations, speaking engagements, the internet, and media in general. The pressure on youth to make poor and dangerous choices is incredible and parents are often caught off guard and ill-informed.

Everyone has an interest in adolescents, even in the workplace where companies face the absenteeism of parents who are in the midst of a home crisis. In youth groups and on school campuses, teens influence teens and need to understand the consequences of their choices through the information Resource provides. Youth in trouble are found in our legal system and Safe Harbor is addressing these juvenile offenders with its Community and Court Referral Program. Seventy percent (70%) of Alabama’s children who leave the Department of Youth Services (DYS) will return to the system as repeat offenders. Safe Harbor provides a new interface between these youth and the legal system that can restore these offenders to a better future lifestyle.
The medical community benefits from Resource by our provision of current information that may answer questions medical personnel observe during the care and treatment of their adolescent patients. Parents of those patients can be directed to additional answers through the Resource Department of Safe Harbor.
