Safe Harbor was founded by a group of concerned citizens in 1992 in response to the plight of homeless people who were routinely sleeping on the Courthouse steps and around the downtown area of West Chester. We continue to effectively serve the homeless with both volunteers and professional staff. From preparing and serving meals, to working with our residents in the shelter, volunteers account for over half the time dedicated to helping people who come to us seeking shelter and rehabilitation. Please fill out the form or call Melissa at 610-340-1183 if you would like to set up an appointment to learn more about our volunteer opportunities.
