Puerto Seguro Safe Harbor, Inc. (PSI) is a non profit 501(c)(3) corporation chartered for the purpose of offering a “safe place” where clients may use shower facilities, acquire clothing and food, and be connected with other service agencies that can provide help with housing, employment, education, rehabilitation, counseling, medical, and other needs. PSI does not charge for its services and it is publicly supported. PSI’s clients include men, women, and children of all ages including many veterans and Native Americans.
