Thank you, so Much!!!…

We were shocked at the outpouring of support for our generator fundraising drive. We were able to meet our goal within just a few weeks. We had many people donate financially to our cause – several from outside of Texas. I want to recognize Dr. Travis Stembridge, who gave us a very generous donation to purchase our generator. Dr. Stembridge was the grandson of our founder Jake Stembridge. Dr. Stembridge lived with his grandfather at Soul’s Harbor during its early beginnings in the 1950s. He has shared many stories with me about Soul’s Harbor which turns 65 years old this August. Pictured above is the generator, that we will be installing in our upstairs dorm / meeting hall next month.

Thank you so much for helping make our dream come true.

Fixer Upper…

One of our biggest issues at Soul’s Harbor is our old buildings. As mentioned in the previous article, we are 65 years old. Unfortunately many of our buildings are over 50 years old. We were blessed last month to receive a sizable grant from the Hillcrest Foundation to facilitate a remodel to our dorms. We are preparing major plans for renovations to our dorms.

Thank you, Hillcrest Foundation for hearing our cry for help.

We need your help…

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.
