Programs

Safe Harbor programs are available at no charge to all Sheboygan County residents. We work to provide barrier free access to our services. Some ways in which this is done include a toll free 800 number for the crisis line, having program information available in Spanish and Hmong, offering support groups at a variety of times and locations, providing transportation, having a barrier-free office and shelter, and having translators and interpreters available upon request and through referrals from other agencies in the county. Our shelter is ADA compliant.
