This biennial report includes findings and recommendations about the Safe Harbor initiative, based on key informant interviews, participation surveys and interviews, focus groups, and information about youth collected in a database by grantees. Key findings include:

  • Safe Harbor provides services that would not otherwise be available
  • Safe Harbor draws on youth, grantee, and state strengths to positively impact those served
  • Service and training gaps, systemic challenges, and information gaps decrease Safe Harbor's reach and impact
