Souls Harbor NWA started as a homeless shelter in 1988, reaching out to men who were hungry, homeless, hurting and struggling. Almost 30 years later, Souls Harbor has become a transitional living community and offers so much more than the basic necessities – they give men second chances to restore their lives and rebuild relationships with their families.
Souls Harbor is committed to raising awareness and breaking the stigmas associated with poverty, homelessness and addiction by offering a hand up, not a hand out. Residents receive food, clothes, recovery programs, education, job training, counseling, spiritual guidance, and more at no cost.
While the staff at Souls Harbor finds immeasurable fulfillment from every success of the men in their programs, each year is a new beginning for the facility. It costs $20,000 a month to operate the facility, and with no government funding it gets expensive. Like most nonprofits, Souls Harbor relies on donations and fundraising events, like their upcoming Dinner with Soul gala which features a night of dancing, dinner, raffles, and live and silent auctions.
Food for thought: Over 90 percent of residents at Souls Harbor NWA are fathers. When you invest in their lives, you are investing in generations of lives behind them.
