February 2017 Newsletter

The envelope please, and the winner is…

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.


Soul’s Harbor homeless shelter is supported solely by our four thrift stores. You can donate your household items via phone (972-286-1940) or our “Household Donation Request Form” page.
We also take automobiles “Vehicle Donation Request Form“. So if you have old clothes, furniture, appliances, household items, or even a car to donate to Soul’s Harbor, either fill out our online form or call our dispatch office at 972-286-1940. Our dispatch office is open Monday through Saturday from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM. We are sustained solely through our four thrift store sales.
We rely on your donated items to support our shelter. At Soul’s Harbor, we would like to thank all our customers that donate their items and also our thrift store customers. Because without our customers, there would be no Soul’s Harbor.

Thank you and God Bless.
