Welcome to Soul’s Harbor…

“…Jake knew there was a better way, perhaps a “soul’s harbor” where a man could stay for a spell, think and evaluate his life and maybe do something to make positive changes…”

What’s older than the Dallas Cowboys?

The answer, Soul’s Harbor. Soul’s Harbor is older than any of the major sports teams in the Dallas area – Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks, Dallas Stars and Dallas Cowboys. Today, we celebrate 62 years of serving homeless men with substance abuse issues.

We have a very rich history at Soul’s Harbor. Without Jake Stembridge and Ralph Whittle, there would be no Soul’s Harbor. Ralph Whittle and his son Dick Whittle were the financial backers and overall architects of Soul’s Harbor. Mr. Ralph Whittle bought the land for Soul’s Harbor and his son Dick drew the plans for the first building at the current Soul’s Harbor location today. Whittle Construction Company drove the foundation pilings to shale and thus started the legacy of Soul’s Harbor. We have housed famous singers, songwriters and even President’s college roommate at Soul’s Harbor – all of these famous men beginning their road to recovery at Soul’s Harbor.

Thank you, Jake Stembridge and Ralph Whittle for helping tens of thousands of men over the last 62 years.

Capital Fund Campaign…

Current Funds Raised = $39,870.00

When I came to Dallas 9 years ago, appointed as Executive Director of Soul’s Harbor, I was amazed at its long history of serving homeless men since 1956. But with its legacy, it comes with buildings that needs major renovation or complete replacement. Another issue we have encountered in the last 3 years, is that we are always full and there is a 3 to 4 week waiting period for our 66 beds. This is due to our cutting edge recovery model that takes a holistic approach to helping homeless men with substance abuse addiction.
To address both issues, we have started our Capital Fund Campaign. Pictured above is the proposed layout with a sketch of one of our four new dormitories. This will increase our capacity from 66 beds to over 100 beds. We also have plans to include a new kitchen / dining hall building along with complete renovations of our meeting halls, computer lounge and recreation room.

If you are interested in helping us, please visit our Capital Fund Campaign section on our website:

Also, we have included a short 5 minute video on the Capital Fund Campaign section of our website which will show you the current condition at Soul’s Harbor. Every dollar helps. Please contribute and if you can not donate monetarily, please donate your household items by calling our dispatch office at 972-286-1940.

The men of Soul’s Harbor greatly appreciate your time, your consideration and your pledge.

Thank you, for your support.

Reggie and Soul’s Harbor on local Fox 4 News

Pictured above is our Assistant Director, Reggie Finch at his high school alma mater – Irving MacArthur. Reggie is to the far right with the black t-shirt. Reggie was there for Rock Bottom Outreach and telling his story to the entire high school football team. Tentatively, Reggie’s story will air on local Fox News on a 15-minute segment called “In the Moment” on Friday, May 12th at 9:30 PM. Reggie told his story back in October of last year – from his high school football days at Irving MacArthur to being recruited by Oklahoma University then being homeless because of his drug addiction and finally his amazing recovery which started 7 years ago at Soul’s Harbor.
Thank you, Fox 4 News for telling Reggie’s story.
Watch Reggie’s amazing story on our The Harbor Program Page.
