Paying it Forward

It is with great sadness to report that our President of Our Board, Dennis O’Hagan, passed away unexpectedly two weeks ago. Dennis was instrumental in setting a positive tone and direction for Soul’s Harbor and starting our Capital Campaign. Besides serving on the board for the last 6 years, Dennis was involved in helping thousands of unemployed job seekers in the Dallas area through his LinkedIn seminars. Also, Dennis ran a golf tournament for 25 years that would benefit local DFW charities. Dennis told me that he was “just paying it forward”. He will be missed by many who were recipients of Dennis’ kindness.


Pet Therapy…

Besides having 4 dogs on the premise, we have added 8 cats and kittens to our homeless shelter. This is a picture of “Bob” who is one of the favorite cats at Soul’s Harbor. One of the many issues with substance abuse addiction is self-absorbed behavior. With the cats, our men feed them, take care of them and give them some loving. It is a nice addition to our holistic approach to our recovery model. If you want to donate cat or dog food for our pets, please call our dispatch office at 972-286-1940 and we will be happy to pick up the cat or dog food.
