Welcome, we are a social service organization providing housing assistance to victims
A Safe Harbor Home, Inc. is committed to equipping victims of domestic violence with the necessary tools to empower their lives. We believe that no one should have to live in fear or in a violent environment with their loved ones...
During her tenure at a fellow national non-profit organization, Lilly Gonzalez actively participated in meetings aimed at addressing pressing social issues within the local community. It was within the confines of these meetings that a glaring and urgent need came to light: Domestic Violence victims found themselves without a safe haven once their limited stay at an emergency shelter came to an end.
In response to this critical issue, Lilly Gonzalez and her husband, Daniel Velez, sprang into action, their commitment unwavering. In the year 2008, they founded A Safe Harbor Home, Inc., a registered 501(c)(3) organization headquartered in Greeneville, Tennessee. The scope of their service reaches across Greene, Carter, Hancock, Hawkins, Sullivan, Washington, Johnson, and Unicoi counties in the northeastern upper region of Tennessee.
A Safe Harbor Home, Inc. is not just a non-profit organization; it is a beacon of hope and support for individuals impacted by domestic violence, as well as those facing the harsh reality of homelessness. Their primary mission is to empower these individuals by providing housing assistance, coupled with essential resources and unwavering support. These services are designed to enable them to embark on a transformative journey towards a brighter future. The organization's dedication to this cause exemplifies their commitment to effecting meaningful change within their community.
