Our vision is to ignite a revolution, compelling individuals to live beyond fear into their best life, fulfilling their destiny. Here, participants will move from fear and anxiety to confidence and freedom. We want to be the last transitional center an individual or family enters.
Our model is becoming the standard for serving members of our community who are working to rebuild their lives. We believe that affordable and supportive housing programs improve economic status, revitalize neighborhoods, and stabilize lives.
In 1992 Pastors Jim and Peggy Minor founded Harvest House with just 6 beds for men in recovery from substance abuse. Today, Harvest House has 9 supportive housing campuses and 30 affordable rentals encompassing 400+ beds and serves more than 900 individuals annually.
As a pioneer in the transitional and permanent supportive housing movement, Harvest House is one of the few nonprofit organizations in Sarasota to work towards the development, preservation, and management of affordable, service-enriched housing, We serve homeless families, veterans, youth ages 18 to 24, and adults with a history of incarceration and substance abuse.
Our programs are not a handout. Instead, they offer a hand-up to those willing to engage and work towards independence. We believe that personal responsibility is a key component of success for the families, youth, veterans, and individuals we serve.
After 25+ years, Harvest House has found that this tri-pronged approach offers sustainable solutions for clients. Supportive Housing includes case management services carefully coupled with Emergency, Transitional, or semi-Permanent Housing.
Neighborhood Revitalization is essential for permanent solutions to poverty and disenfranchisement – we purchase run-down and often abandoned properties with high rates of crime and revitalize them to provide access to affordable housing to those communities.
This is the talented team of professionals that accomplish Harvest House’s goals and mission.
