Who are we?
Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour, Inc.
"Safe Harbour" - Jim Simon, Artist
What are we?
Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour is a 501(c)(3) non-profit membership service organization designed by and for Hilton Head Islanders who want to stay in their own homes as they grow older, continuing to enjoy lifestyles that make Hilton Head Island a special place, with the confidence of knowing that assistance is just a phone call away --
What services can we provide?
HHI Safe Harbour will try to meet the individual needs of its members as long as they can remain safely in their homes. Examples are: transportation for non-drivers, assistance with minor household chores, and help with shopping. Members who pay reasonable annual dues will have access to the services of our carefully screened, bonded, and insured volunteers. When volunteers cannot handle a task, members may be referred to a registry of reliable vendors, some of whom will provide member discounts. Memberships are now available. Call 671-SAFE (7233).
What area do we serve?
Safe Harbour serves all of Hilton Head Island, from the bridge back to the toe of the Island.
What can you do to help?
Safe Harbour needs volunteers from everywhere on the Island and close surrounding areas. The organization hopes to promote “One Island, One Community -- Neighbors helping Neighbors”.
What kinds of services will volunteers provide?
Examples of services for which Safe Harbour volunteers may be needed are the following: transport a member to the doctor or to a hair appointment, or to a performance in the evening; change light bulbs or smoke alarm batteries; take out trash; help organize closets; help plan and prepare for a party or meal for a special occasion; set up or adjust a DVD player, television, or computer; adjust a toilet; make phone calls; schedule appointments; come for a friendly visit or give a spouse or housemate respite time.
What age person can volunteer and what information is needed?
People of all ages are invited to volunteer. Volunteers will choose the services they can and want to provide. For the safety and security of our members and volunteers, and for our insurance, we require a South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) background check for all volunteers. For this, we will need Social Security and driver license numbers and date of birth. That information will be secured and disposed of properly. Volunteer applications are available on our website.
