FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Blue Rooster and Harvest House Partner for Homeless Solutions during the 2015 Giving Challenge
SARASOTA, Fla. August 31, 2015 –It’s no secret that homelessness has been an ongoing issue for Sarasota’s Downtown Rosemary District. For the first time, in celebration of the 2015 Giving Challenge, The Blue Rooster will be partnering with Harvest House to support homeless solutions.
At the end of the night on Tuesday, September 1st Blue Rooster owners Bill and Ellen Cornelius will donate 20% of their food and drink sales to Harvest House via the 2015 Giving Challenge.
What’s more is that the evening of September 1st there will be representatives from Harvest House at The Blue Rooster talking about our mission and the impact we are having in the Greater Newtown Community and Sarasota County.
If Harvest House reaches its goal of 124 donors in 24 hours, a generous donor will award Harvest House $24,000! Gifts to Harvest House during the 2015 Giving Challenge will help #TurnTheLightsOn at the Family Village!
The Family Village concept was one of Dr. Marbut’s original recommendations. #TurnTheLightsOn is a $600,000 capital fundraising campaign for the purchase & renovation of 18 apartments that were once a magnet for criminal activity in the Greater Newtown area. Once renovated, the Family Village will provide housing & supportive services for unaccompanied youth, families and veteran families struggling to recover from the devastation of homelessness.
It will be a very special night with great food, fun, and friends and music by Lauren Mitchell & The Professor
The 2015 Giving Challenge is made possible by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County and The Patterson Foundation with support from the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Manatee Community Foundation, and the Herald-Tribune Media Group.

Please note, submitting an application for an NSP Affordable Rental does not guarantee housing. Units do not become available very often, so Harvest House will hold your application for 6 months in case a unit becomes available. The NSP program has strict gross income limits that are determined by HUD. Please see the chart below to ensure that your household meets the income requirements. Questions?

Submitting an application does not guarantee housing. Our goal is to serve as many families as possible, but due to limitations, we select those with the highest acuity of need first. We hold applications for 6 months in case an opening fits the needs of each applicant over that time period.
Home Again is a housing program that helps families prepare for long-term housing stability. The best fit for the program is families that have many challenges to housing, but are willing to engage with the program to improve their housing situation. Families must be willing to set goals, meet regularly with a case manager, attend life skills classes, and participate in individual housing stability plans.
