A message from Rick Larman, Executive Director of
Safe Harbor Christian Communities. 
Thank you for your patience, prayers, and support during this challenging time. While one of our staff members is under self-quarantine as a precautionary measure, we give thanks to the Lord that all of our residents and staff are healthy as of this writing. As continue monitoring the situation and following the recommendations of the State of Michigan and the CDC, here are some of the actions we are taking. 
  • Our homes are closed to all visitors during the State of Michigan's stay-at-home order, which is in place until at least April 14.
  • We are tracking the temperatures and overall health of our residents each day.
  • The temperatures of staff are checked before their shifts begin and at the end of their shifts. 
  • We are helping the residents stay connected with their families remotely, via Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, etc. 
  • The House Managers are providing the residents' parents/guardians with weekly updates from the homes. 
  • As much as possible, our four group homes are having groceries delivered, in an effort to limit exposure of our residents and staff.
  • We canceled our April 23 Gala. Instead, we will be planning a fun event for our supporters after this crisis is behind us (maybe even a "Gala-to-Go!").

The Hope House ladies have been keeping busy, in spite of the recent changes to their normal routines.

Some of the activities they have been doing together during the shelter-in-place order are baking, decorating lunch bags for Kids' Food Basket, playing board games, working on puzzles, enjoying a St. Patrick's Day themed scavenger hunt around the house, and staying active with Richard Simmons workouts and oldies tunes! 

Pictured above, they are making chocolate chip cookies, which turned out delicious!
The gentlemen from Joseph's House recently spent some time volunteering for Kids' Food Basket, by decorating lunch bags. Way to go guys!
