We believe in change

While women’s shelters can be beneficial in the lives of those who desperately need immediate help, Hope Harbor Ministries in Warm Springs, Ga. established in 2004 is a long term Christ-centered commitment program that serves as a 1 year rehabilitation home for females 18 & up who struggle with abandonment, addiction dependencies, abuse and depression.

Hope Harbor is a pathway toward positive life change for residents who desire to become functioning citizens of society without addiction dependencies while cultivating & maintaining a relationship with Jesus Christ.


Hope Harbor is lovingly supported by a wide community of churches, organizations and volunteers near & far!


Hope Harbor works in partnership with several state judicial systems throughout Georgia & Alabama.


Hope Harbor shares the message of hope by serving in our community & church as part of our restoration recovery process.


The Hope Harbor Team is made up of a solid Board of Directors, Founders, Leadership Team and countless volunteers & prayer partners. All serve as christian facilitators of an intentionally built program for long-term success that challenges each student to reach their full potential spiritually, emotionally, physically and occupationally. The Hope Harbor Leadership Team works daily & intentionally with our students as they navigate the program through serving the Lord, as well as our community.

Stan & Dee Clark – Founders & Executive Directors


Better known as Pops & Mama Dee to all who know them. Married for over 50 years and blessed with two wonderful children and four grandchildren, they balance both family and ministry to bring glory to God. After 28 years in the jail ministry and seeing the devastation that drugs cause in the lives of young ladies and their families, they stepped out in faith and began Hope Harbor.

In 1982, Hope Harbor was born when Dee began a ministry at Tutwiler Prison in Wetumpka, Alabama. After moving to Troup County in 1986, Dee and Stan continued to visit the women in jail and bring them a message that through God’s merciful grace and power they could win the battle they were fighting against their addictions. From 1998 until 2002, they embraced women, allowing them into their home to give them an opportunity to better themselves. Dee and Stan demonstrated unconditional love toward these ladies and provided them with the tools to excel in life. As a result, these women are all very successful today.

In 2002, Hope Harbor became a 501c3. 2004 marked the year when land was purchased and was paid in full by others who believed in their mission. Many people believe in Hope Harbor’s mission because almost everyone has either battled an addiction themselves, or has had a close family member or friend battle with an addiction.

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well. -Matthew 6:33 

In February 2005, Hope Harbor joyously opened its doors to its first residents. At the end of 12 months, the first graduation was held. For nearly 2 decades, countless numbers of lives have changed & hundreds of graduations have been held through the work of this amazing ministry. Although Hope Harbor is small in size, it is undeniable that this ministry is quite unique and very successful. The Clark’s strongly believe that although addiction has the potential to destroy life, God’s merciful grace and power can generate a new life truly creating beauty from the ashes.


No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord. -Isaiah 54:17 

Dee and Stan strongly believe that although addiction has the potential to destroy life, God’s merciful grace and power can generate life: truly creating beauty from the ashes.
