New Heights is Harvest House’s long-term transitional living Program for young adults experiencing or at-risk of experiencing homelessness.
Part of the New Heights programming requires clients to set SMART Goals in the areas of Vocation, Leadership, Social, Education, Financial, Health, and Dreams.
Three current New Heights clients have a big Education goal: Earn a GED by the end of the year. Their case manager, Dayna, worked with them to get enrolled in GED classes at Suncoast Technical College.
She stressed the importance of a GED. Achieving this goal will open up countless more pathways to success for these students. Even if they choose not to earn a college degree or technical certification, the GED is essential.
Having someone believing in and encouraging them is one barrier that they’ve already overcome just by choosing to be a New Heights client. Now, they just needed new laptops to get started with their classes.
On Friday last week, all three received perfectly functioning, fully loaded laptops from the the wonderful people at the Sarasota Technology Users Group!
This was a perfect partnership that formed thanks to the Community Foundation of Sarasota County.
We believe in these hardworking students, and we are so excited to see how far they’ll go!
Our young adult clients are between the ages of 18-24. Some find Harvest House through partner agencies such as the Salvation Army, the Sarasota County Sheriff’s HOT Team, the Sarasota Police Department’s HOT Team, or even through word-of-mouth referrals.
Every single client has a unique story, and our case managers work endlessly to meet the complex needs of young adults experiencing hard times. Check out a recent partnership success story, where three human services agencies came together to provide wraparound services for a young adult in need in our community.

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.

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.
