Harvest Home is a residential program that serves homeless pregnant women and their babies. All women enter the program while they are pregnant, and stay on average between 3 and 6 months after the birth of their child. Harvest Home offers a nurturing, structured program aimed at helping each woman make changes in her life in order to attain independence and stability.
Through case management, classes, and other structures, Harvest Home encourages growth in the following areas:
Care for Her Child
Our goal is to equip each new mom with the education and tools needed to make healthy, loving and intentional decisions for her child. We provide childbirth classes, doula support, infant care classes, parenting groups and mentoring to each woman as she prepares for the journey of motherhood.
Our goal is to help each woman develop a plan for long-term financial independence and stability. Through our program, we provide the structure and education needed to help her begin this plan. We encourage participation in employment programs, GED completion, certification programs, and credit repair. We provide a match savings program and a monthly budget plan for each woman, teaching her basic money management skills.
Emotional and Mental Health
Many of our clients have endured trauma and abuse in their lives. Our goal is to provide avenues through which each woman can seek healing, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and learn how to manage her emotional and mental health. During her time at Harvest Home, each woman is provided access to therapy free of charge. We also provide classes on emotional and relational growth, anger management, and conflict resolution. We encourage participation in recovery and support groups as needed.
Our goal is to help each woman make healthy and informed decisions for her body and for her child’s health. At Harvest Home, each woman participates in a nutrition class, a weekly cooking and meal planning rotation, and a weekly yoga class.
Harvest Home is a Christian organization that serves all women, regardless of religious affiliation. Our goal is to be sensitive and respectful to each woman’s individual spiritual journey, and to provide a home where each woman can find healing, encouragement, and hope for her future.
