Woman Who Inspires: Real Superheros of Safe Harbor

Safe Harbor is introducing the “Real Superheroes of Safe Harbor” gala to the community. For eight years the annual event was known as the “Real Men of St. Tammany” gala, but this year the competition for the Real Superhero of Safe Harbor title will be open to men and women.

These superheroes will work to increase awareness and financial support for the education and prevention of domestic violence. The superhero who raises the most money for Safe Harbor will be named the Real Superhero of the Year at the close of the event.

The Gala will be held Saturday, September 21st at the Northshore Harbor Center, 7pm-11pm.

A Safe Place

Safe Harbor is a non-profit, non-government agency in St. Tammany Parish serving survivors and their minor children who are victims of domestic abuse. We can provide a safe place to stay and a variety of critical support services ranging from crisis intervention, legal advocacy, playgroups, emotional support, and community-based referrals for kids.

On Your Side

Our professional staff and trained volunteers help bridge the gap between victimization and independence. That includes everything from accessing the right social services to finding a job and a new place to live. We’re available 24 hours a day. We’re completely confidential. All services are free with no income eligibility requirement.

Our services are made possible, in part, by grants from the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services/Family Violence and Intervention Program, United Way of Southeast Louisiana, Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement/VAWA, Louisiana Bar Foundation/IOLTA, Rotary International and others.
