Donation From Members of The Congregational Church

Members of The Congregational Church of Patchogue donated a substantial amount of toilet tissues for residents of Safe Harbor. The money that would have been spent on this item can now be used to provide counseling to the children who had to leave their own homes to be safe and are now residing at the shelter. What the members did is actually quite monumental. Special thanks to all the members and to Rev. Dwight Lee Wolter for their on-going support.

Civic/Community: Emphasis will be on programs that teach disadvantaged persons independent living skills and improve race/cultural relations.
Domestic Violence Prevention: Support will target immediate emergency services and shelter accommodations for victims and family members affected by abusive situations as well as programming that works to break the cycle of violence.
Education: Support will go to programs that provide academic and vocational opportunities for the disadvantaged, including early intervention, mentoring, tutoring, GED and college coursework as well as programs that teach people to speak, read and write English.
Health: Support will go to programs that provide early and comprehensive prenatal services and healthy baby education. We also consider funding for medical research that furthers the treatment of, or eliminates the impact of, congenital or chronic diseases.
Social Services: Disadvantaged children and families will be the primary beneficiaries of these contributions. We will give to programs that strengthen the family unit, along with the parent-child relationship, offer food and clothing assistance, provide counseling, youth development or adoption services. We also support programs that directly help those with mental or physical impairments.
