Harvest House Launches New Website – harvesthousecenters.org
The local human services provider just finished a complete overhaul of their website – harvesthousecenters.org.
Thanks to funding provided by the Edward K. Roberts Emerging Needs Fund at the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, Harvest House partnered with Keith Marcel Consulting to redesign the high-traffic site that was experiencing low-functionality. Keith specializes in creative storytelling and brand development for businesses and non-profits.
The new, reorganized, mobile-friendly site makes it easier for clients, donors, partners, and volunteers to navigate Harvest House’s spectrum of services. “We’re a local organization, and we need our community to know about who we are, what we do, and why we do it. This redesign will help us accomplish that. It will also improve the experience for those that need our services, as well as our friends and supporters looking for ways to help. Next, we’re working on getting all of our program applications converted to a web-version.” said Executive Director Erin Minor.
The site also features a new ‘Get Involved’ page, which offers a list of ways people can actively participate in the Harvest House mission.
Harvest House has been doing essential work in Sarasota since 1992 and today, is one of the largest human service providers in the area. There are programs for families and young adults experiencing homelessness as well as veterans and single adults needing residential addiction recovery services.
“This investment in our brand is so important to us as we work to increase awareness of the Harvest House mission in our local community. Now that we have this beautifully designed platform, we’re excited to add new content in the coming months – including a podcast,” said Shaelina Holmes, Director of Development and Marketing.

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.
