"Safe Harbor is an emergency shelter that helps people with addiction, and we do homelessness; people who are homeless can come in and they get free meals. We help 'em with job searches, we help 'em with applications, we help 'em with resumes. We have a pantry where they can come get food. Basically it's an organization that helps fight homelessness and we try to do homeless awareness."
"And how did you get involved with them?"
"I actually became a resident last year and relapsed and came back. I been sober ever since last year of July 28th and got back in there. They've been great--they have staff on duty at all times that if you need to talk to 'em you can talk to 'em. The director is fantastic, the case managers, the secretary. They're all fantastic people."
"How did you make the decision to become sober?"
"The programs that they offer--they do A.A. meetings on Saturdays, N.A. meetings, very supportive of sobriety. If you feel like using, it's not an issue to talk to one of them--they've all been through it. They all have a story to tell. They open your eyes to what life can really be about in sobriety 'cause they're walking stories themselves. They're recovered and they're sober and they let you know that there's more to life than being messed up all the time."
