“In 2016 Portsmouth had a 147% increase of homelessness from the previous year and is continuing to rise. Lack of employment opportunities, relationship breakdowns, financial struggles and mental health all play a part.”

Safe Harbour’s Vision is to invest in meaningful relationships, meet the individual’s deep-seated needs for personal, authentic connection and relationship, which could lead to increased self-worth, dignity and sense of self-efficacy. We want to show that Love is an action by serving and caring for these individuals so that they would encounter the person and the love of Jesus. This will be a way to initially connect with those who are homeless but the hope is that this will lead to them wanting to change their current situation.
