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…”
Approximately every 51 minutes, someone is killed in a drunk driving crash. Everyone knows that buzzed driving can have devastating physical consequences, but did you know it can have huge financial consequences as well?
More On Buzzed Driving Prevention:
Why does the Ad Council’s “Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving” campaign matter? Because every 52 minutes, someone is killed in an alcohol-related car accident. While this is a chilling statistic, it is not new to the Ad Council. In fact, we have focused on drunk driving prevention since 1983, reminding Americans that “Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Drunk,” and sharing home videos of everyday people whose lives have been shattered by drunk driving. This personal perspective on the effects of drunk driving has helped make the campaign an undeniable success: Since launching, nearly 70 percent of Americans have tried to stop someone from driving after drinking.

The Meanest Man in Texas. A big Soul’s Harbor “Thank you” to Don Umphrey who is the author of the “The Meanest Man in Texas” book and Executive Producer of the movie of the same title. Don treated our homeless men to a preview of the upcoming movie. Pictured to the left is a scene from the prison movie. The movie won the best script from the Los Angeles Cinema Festival of Hollywood. Also, the film has been entered in several film festivals like Tribeca and South by Southwest. Without giving the movie away, it is based on a true story of faith, love, redemption and freedom. The book is available for sale on Amazon.
Updated Program Section on website
We just recently updated our website, making minor modifications. However, we revamped our entire program section that we dub “The Harbor Program”. We added a new description along with an updated video of our Assistant Director – Reggie Finch. We are very proud of our 6-month substance abuse program that has been in existence since 1956 – helping tens of thousands of homeless men during the decades.
