What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Home Again

Permanent Supportive Housing - 26 Apartments for families who are homeless. Families in the Home Again program receive up to 24 months of supportive housing with case management and life-skills classes to further prepare families for meaningful employment and housing stability. We believe personal responsibility is key to success, therefore families pay a maximum of 30% of their income for rent, utilities, and services. 14 apartments are subsidized by HUD to serve those that meet HUDs 'chronically homeless' definition. 12 apartments are subsidized through private donations from individual donors and foundations like the Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation, allowing Harvest House to serve families that are at risk of being chronically homeless but are still experiencing homelessness.

Population(s) Served
Families
Economically disadvantaged people
Single parents
At-risk youth

The Freedom program is a residential recovery program modeled as a hybrid between a halfway-house and an intensive in-patient recovery program. There are 72 beds for men and 25 beds for women who are struggling with alcohol and/or drug addiction. Participants can stay up to 12 months to receive residential recovery with case management and life-enrichment classes. This holistic approach to recovery treats the mind, body, and spirit, and prepares individuals for meaningful employment and housing stability as they transition out of life-limiting patterns into freedom.

New Heights Transitional Living Program A progressive program is specifically designed for 18 to 24-year-old young adults who are experiencing homelessness.

Family Haven (Emergency Shelter) - 24 beds in 6 dorm-style apartments for families and 4 beds for homeless unaccompanied young women ages 18-24 who are found living in unsuitable conditions and are in need of immediate, same-day housing. The Family Haven is the emergency housing solution for homeless families in Sarasota County. The participants work with case managers to secure longer-term transitional and permanent housing solutions, whether within Harvest House or with another agency. There is no cost to participants for these emergency services. Transitional Housing - 5 apartments for homeless families needing more time to stabilize after 30 days in the emergency shelter. There is no cost for this program.

Through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) HUD provided money to local governments, nonprofits, and all 50 states for the purpose of stabilizing communities that have suffered from foreclosures and abandonment. NSP partners acquired and rehabilitated properties to sell or rent to low- and moderate-income households. Harvest House is honored to participate in this nationwide program with 25 affordable rental units throughout Sarasota and Manatee Counties. Many of these units are inhabited by former clients who worked hard to end the cycle of homelessness in their family. NSP contributes to our overall mission of revitalizing neighborhoods and transforming lives.

We find that occasionally Freedom graduates benefit from continued supportive housing during their next steps in recovery. In our Graduate Housing program, tenants sign a lease at an affordable rate that includes their rent and utilities, and they maintain access to the supportive services of the Freedom program, including the life-skills classes, support groups, and our loving community. For some, this is a necessary step after recovery from addiction and finding sustainable housing. Others will never be able to live on their own due to age and/or pre-existing conditions.

Every week, the Harvest Food Pantry distributes an average of 50lbs of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, and dry goods to each family. In 2021, over 579,000 lbs of food were distributed to more than 11,000 Sarasota families. The Harvest Food Pantry is also a resource for other local nonprofits and special outreaches, such as group homes for foster children and the elderly, as well as Harvest House clients. We have many partners whom we receive donations from or purchase food at a discounted rate, including Trader Joe’s, All Faith’s Food Bank, Fresh Market, and Publix. This is all possible thanks to our partners and dedicated volunteers. Our new facility on Princeton Street has provided an excellent opportunity for increased partnerships with other agencies who need food to distribute to those they serve and the ability to better receive food, sort, store, and distribute.

Create an atmosphere in which each participant will have the opportunity to achieve residential stability, increase their skill level, and obtain a greater understanding of their strengths and purpose.

Engage participants using case management & individualized service plans based on shared responsibility & accountability.

Provide each participant with a range of supportive services that will instill physical and mental wellbeing, a sense of belonging, and a desire to lead a productive life.
