Safe Harbor Proposes Partnership with Missions, Shelters, and Transitional Housing to provide counseling services to all the men, women, and children in the program


The Care Group at Safe Harbor's counselors bring a vast array of expertise
  • We offer licensed counselors (LCSW-C or LCPC) on-site to provide clinically-sound mental health services.
  • Our counselors bring a vast array of expertise related to treatment of substance abuse, trauma, and mental health issues.
  • There is no cost to the Mission, Shelter, or Transitional Housing (we are an in-network provider with Maryland & DC Medicaid).
  • We can work with all of the men and women in the program, or just some of them (if they already have mental health counselors that they are currently working with).
  • We handle all insurance billing from our national office in Bel Air, MD. Client records are kept electronically—we do not need to store records.
  • Our counselors and administrative personnel work closely with the staff in scheduling all sessions.
  • Collaboration and Seamless treatment: Our on-site counselors value collaboration with the mission, shelter, or transitional housing staff to ensure high-quality clinical and compassionate treatment.

Steps to Establishing an On-Site Location

STEP 1: Review information packet/email about establishing 
a desire for a Safe Harbor Partnership.

STEP 2: Meet with the Director of Community Outreach for a Q&A meeting, and sign Memorandum of Understanding.

STEP 3: Have an initial meeting with your on-site The Care Group at Safe Harbor Counselor, and review program introduction, and intake procedure.

Note: Program Introduction usually consists of staff meeting, introduction letter and brochures for future participants.

STEP 4: Establish monitoring & follow up timetable to assure program is running well.



We are in 9 states, with over 120 counselors and 100 locations at local churches, schools, missions & shelters nationwide. We accept most major health insurance.
