 MINnows – Mothers and Infants Nurturing Program

Safe Harbor believes that parents are the most important building blocks for the future of their children! We want to provide positive support and reinforcement of mothers’ strengths, while providing an additional nurturing, healthy environment for infants and toddlers in those very important formative years.

The Minnows program is a drop in type nursery school for infants and toddlers between the ages of birth to four years.

The program is free of charge to mothers who are participating in any of Safe Harbor’s programs, or those referred to Safe Harbor by partnering agencies.             To reach the MINnows program please call               828-639-4460.

  The Bridge

Sex trafficking is a growing problem across the state of North Carolina and it’s fueled by factors like homelessness, poverty,
addiction, and abuse. The Bridge program reaches into these high-risk populations to prevent sex trafficking and to help victims find hope and healing.
