The purpose of the Safety Harbor Kids organization is to create a support system for parentless, foster & homeless children to better the quality of their lives.  

No doubt, the proceeds raised yesterday at the 6th Annual Safety Harbor Polo Match Fundraiser helped the Safety Harbor Kids organization to reach their goal to build a College, Career & Arts Education for the children to have a place to call home.
