Safe Harbor was created with the goal of reducing barriers to success and to provide equitable services for students and families. Safe Harbor is a one-stop directory to behavioral health and community services in Thurston, Mason, Grays Harbor, Lewis and Pacific counties. Safe Harbor aims to increase knowledge and awareness of mental well-being, to provide information about systems of support, and increase access to care.
Capital Region ESD 113 in partnership with its districts has created Safe Harbor to serve as a guide for students, families, and schools as they navigate decisions regarding violence, substance abuse, mental health needs, and access to support. ESD 113’s four goals are:
- Close gaps: We respond to systemic disparities that produce persistent and predictable imbalances in student opportunities.
- Grow people: We recognize potential and support professional development and learning.
- Influence change: We advocate for students, families, and districts.
- Eradicate racism: We confront inequity based on race, and recognize and address our own biases.
