SAFE HARBOR Announces Grand Opening of the Chloe Waldrop Taylor Renewal Center!
HICKORY, NC (June 4, 2019) — Over 300 people turned out on Monday, June 3rd to help Safe Harbor celebrate the grand opening of the new Chloe Waldrop Taylor Renewal Center – including a pair of hawks doing a fly over! The festive event included self-guided tours open to the public, 106.9 The Light entertained the guests with Christian music and refreshments were served on the patio of the Center.
The Renewal Center will be a community center during the day where women on the fringes of poverty can experience life transformation through existing pathways at Safe Harbor. New additions to the ministry include housing Safe Harbor’s MinNows program for infants & toddlers, a new Co-ed Thrive Recovery Community in the afternoon and evenings, and uplifting classes that will empower women across all walks of life. The Vision of Safe Harbor is to inspire everyone that we encounter to a thriving and purposeful life in Christ.
The Hickory community had shown tremendous support for construction of the Center through Safe Harbor’s “Building a Solid Foundation” capital campaign over this past year. “We could not have done this without the support of this amazingly generous community. I hope all supporters of this entire ministry will really know that they are playing a direct part in women, children and family’s lives being changed and renewed when they partner with Safe Harbor” said Vicki Murray, Executive Director of Safe Harbor.
