YouTube Recovery

We are always improving our program at Soul’s Harbor. We try to stay on the “cutting edge” of recovery. Last month, we added a whole new section on our website that contains recovery videos that were uploaded to YouTube. These videos contain instructional information on recovery, testimonies and some really funny stories. We will be frequently updating and adding new videos. So check out our YouTube videos by going to our main website and clicking on YouTube Recovery or by go directly to:

63 Years in the Making…

August 2, 1956 Soul’s Harbor was chartered as a charitable, non-profit institution. A seven man board of directors was established. Three members of that board were alcoholics. A method of financing was needed so our founders, Jake Stembridge and Ralph Whittle, began seeking out discarded items which could be repaired and sold. The non-profit still is financed by reselling donated items that are sold in 4 of our thrift stores. Soul’s Harbor has grown from housing 5 men in 1956 to 70 men in 2019. Soul’s Harbor’s substance abuse recovery program is one of the premier long term holistic programs in the Dallas / Fort Worth area. To learn more about our program, go to our website:
