Mission

Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour is a non-profit membership service organization designed to help Hilton Head Islanders stay in their own homes, for as long as safely possible, as they grow older.   Committed volunteers provide non-medical support services and resources to help Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour members live healthy and meaningful lives in their own homes and neighborhoods. We are “Neighbors helping Neighbors” with the goal of being “One Island, One Community”.


Background

A meeting was held on Hilton Head Island in March, 2009 under the auspices of the Beaufort County Coalition for Aging in Place. Over 80 Island and mainland residents attended and described the types of services they thought they might need as they grew older in their own homes. As a result of this meeting, five determined Hilton Head Island began planning for an “aging in place” organization to serve Island residents. A “seed money” grant of $1,500 from the Coalition for Aging in Place enabled Hilton Head island Safe Harbour to incorporate in August, 2009 and obtain its 501(C)(3) in November, 2009. Volunteers were recruited and services began in January, 2010 with 4 official members and 8 volunteers. 

Since that time, the membership has grown to an average of between 40 and 50 members at any point in time. Members pay moderate annual dues, which may be paid quarterly. Those who can’t afford this are granted financial assistance by the organization – no one is turned away because of inability to pay. The percent of members with financial assistance for dues is usually around 25%. Since its inception, Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour has served more than 150 people.


Impact

Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour members are often in transition. They ultimately may leave our organization to move to a continuing care community, to live with or be closer to family, or perhaps to stay in their own home with full-time help, or because of death. When members need time to figure out their next phase of life, Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour can serve many of their needs while they take that time. 

Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour volunteers drive our aging and/or disabled members, who are no longer able to drive, to medical and physical therapy appointments, shopping, personal care appointments, so that their lives may remain as normal as possible. Isolation and loneliness are also addressed through weekly phone calls when needed, home visits, and workshops, movies, teas, and conversation groups that are held at Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour’s office. Volunteers also make respite visits, when needed, to allow members’ care partners to have a break from the care routine.


Needs

Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour needs financial contributions to provide financial assistance to members in need, enable the organization to expand the special programs and services it provides to members, obtain gift certificates and other rewards honoring outstanding volunteers and to otherwise support the mission and programs of the organization.

Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour is also always in need of volunteers. The organization usually has a waiting list of Island residents who need help, but they cannot be served unless there are enough trained volunteers to meet their needs each week.

CEO/Executive Director Statement

It is such a joy to be the leader of Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour. In carrying out its mission, I have the opportunity to interact with a wonderful corps of volunteers and interesting and remarkable members. Our volunteers and members come from all walks of life and their diverse backgrounds lead to strong and lasting relationships between them.

As the island population ages, finding people who need our help is not a problem. In fact, we generally have a waiting list of potential members. The major dilemma I face is recruiting   enough volunteers to keep pace with the growing number of requests we receive for our services.

In addressing this problem, Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour is embarking on an aggressive volunteer recruitment campaign to educate the public about our mission. We intend to use the media, speaking engagements, and whatever other means are available to us to help Islanders understand what an important role they could play in the community by volunteering with us.

There is nothing more valuable than the gift of time. Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour invites Islanders to share that gift with their fellow islanders enabling them to better “age in place.”


Board Chair Statement

We are the first “Aging in Place Village” in South Carolina and we share our experiences and materials with others who are interested in organizing an aging in place organization in their neighborhood. We are delighted to be a part of the “Village movement” here in South Carolina and of the “Village to Village Network” nationwide.

Our members inspire each of us as volunteers. Yes, I am chair of the board, but also an active volunteer. To me it appears that our members gracefully meet the many challenges that occur with the aging process, and they have a wealth of knowledge to share with those who will stop long enough to listen. Through my work with Safe Harbour, I certainly have a “crystal ball” into my own next phase of life. I feel fortunate to be involved with this organization because I not only get to meet such interesting people here on Hilton Head Island, but elsewhere around the state.

Programs
Description

The primary program of Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour involves volunteers providing various kinds of customized services for members. Other programs include: educational sessions, craft workshops, volunteer training and recognition, social and cultural events (such as film showings) for members and volunteers

Volunteers learn how to use Volgistics, a computerized scheduling program, and share experiences with other volunteers through volunteer training sessions and periodic volunteer get-togethers. Monthly crafts workshops are scheduled in which members create greeting cards and engage in other crafts. Monthly film showings take place, with discussions and refreshments afterwards. Educational workshops present members and volunteers with medical and health issues and other topics such as the “Five Wishes” document which can be notarized, witnessed and used as a Living Will in South Carolina and other states.

Budget 0
Short Term Success Members who might otherwise be home alone socialize with other members and volunteers, sharing challenges and information. Refreshments or lunch often are served. All share lots of laughs and usually take home something they have made to show for their time. Outstanding volunteers are rewarded with gift cards and recognition in our weekly email letter and quarterly newsletter.
Long Term Success

Members particularly enjoy the small group gatherings; they bond with each other and look forward to getting together on regular bases.

With training, volunteers feel more secure with their assignments and they enjoy meeting other volunteers who work with the same members. Educational topics help members and volunteers to understand issues and cope with situations in an informed manner and with more confidence.
