Hickory – Safe Harbor recently received a grant from the Kenneth K. and Suzanne G. Millholland Endowment Fund. This grant was in the amount of $5,000 to go towards the cost of running their Whole Woman year-long recovery program.

Safe Harbor’s Whole Woman program has a 70% success rate of women living in recovery one year after graduation.

Safe Harbor feels tremendously blessed that the Kenneth K. and Suzanne G. Millholland Endowment Fund has provided funding to go towards life TRANSFORMATION! “It’s not just one life that is being transformed but entire families, for generations to come” says Vicki Murray, Executive Director of Safe Harbor.
