Work In The Community
Safe Harbors builds community through annual events, programs and community engagement. Our spring community clean up brings hundreds of Newburgh and neighboring community members out to clean the city streets and Safe Harbors annual 5K and half-marathon Running Festival brings hundreds more runners, walkers and spectators to the city each year. Bells on Broadway, Safe Harbors holiday festival, invites children and adults of all ages to visit with Santa Claus and Frosty, enjoy live music, shop local and take in the holiday atmosphere in a vibrant community setting. Outdoor concerts, summer camps, family paint-ins and public art exhibitions have anchored Safe Harbors as a cultural and community hub and venue for local and partnering organizations’ meetings and events.
Safe Harbors provided fertile soil for two vibrant businesses in our Broadway commercial spaces and is happy to have Grit Works and 2 Alices Coffee Lounge in the building.
