Safe Harbor Season Begins Today, Volunteers Needed

By Beth Milligan | Nov. 2, 2019

Safe Harbor of Grand Traverse will open its doors today (Saturday) to offer overnight emergency shelter services through the winter - and is seeking volunteers for the season.

According to a Safe Harbor release, the nonprofit has been "working on both operational updates and building modifications to make the shelter more welcoming to people who experience homelessness on the streets of the Grand Traverse region." Over 300 individuals were served last year at the shelter - located at 517 Wellington Street - from November 2018 to April 2019. Guests receive a blanket, bunk, and storage tub, along with an evening meal and a cold breakfast. Shower and laundry facilities are also available. Services are also offered at the facility from other community agencies at the shelter's Housing & Human Services Resource Center.

This will be Safe Harbor's third season in its new facility. The organization is now accepting volunteer applications for those interested in helping out at the shelter. Volunteer details and applications are available online here.
