Care for Her Child

Each woman who walks through our doors desires to make a better life not just for herself, but for her baby. Harvest Home’s primary role is to support each mother by ensuring that she has the knowledge and skills necessary to create a safe and healthy environment for her child. We harness the support of our staff, volunteers, and community agencies to create a network that provides our women with experienced and professional support.

Harvest Home uses an educational curriculum that consists of DVDs, books, and classes that ensures each woman is as prepared as she can be for childbirth and parenting. Each woman has 24/7 support of our live-in house managers who are available for counsel, advice or in the case of an emergency.
