Donated Laptops Help Young Adults Reach Goals

Sarasota Technology Users Group Donates 3 Laptops

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.
