Celebrates Partnership with Safe Harbor

Nu Chapter celebrated its partnership with Safe  Harbor at the April 1, 2023, meeting. Vicki Murray, Safe Harbor CEO, met with Nu Chapter to conduct a tour of the Chloe Waldrop Taylor Renewal Center, the community center that focuses on providing services that support the needs of women while building community and enhancing their quality of life. Then, Murray shared some facts about their  programs. Safe Harbor  . . .

 . . . is a Christ-centered, 501(c)3 organization.

. . .  includes housing and training for women.

. . .  started in 2004 for single women experiencing homelessness or transitioning from prison.

. . . provides a free, year-long program empowering women to experience long-term recovery.

. . . recently opened a recovery day center in Boone.

 . . . operates on donations and partnerships with businesses and churches.

Following the tour and program, Nu President Leslie Black presented Safe Harbor with a $550 check for its mission in helping women within our community to rebuild, renew, and recover as they work towards independent living.
