Graduate Housing

Graduates of the Freedom and VETS programs can benefit from continued supportive housing during their next steps in recovery. Graduate housing residents will never be able to live on their own due to age or pre-existing conditions. 

Sober Living


Tenants accepted to this program sign a lease at an affordable rate that includes rent, utilities, and access to the Harvest Food Pantry. They also maintain access to the supportive services of the Freedom program, including the life-skills classes, support groups, and our loving community.


We believe that all people have the right to a safe and stable place to live.

Higher rates of physical and emotional trauma, substance abuse, and unemployment make veterans twice as likely to become homeless than non-veterans. Although these individuals are revered for their service, there is a monumental lack of programs and social networks to help returning soldiers adjust to civilian life.

Similar to the Freedom program, VETS is a progressive, structured program that focuses primarily on skill mastery. In partnership with the VA, services can be offered to honorably discharged Veterans free of charge via the GPD program. Our hope is that our clients master the skills to thrive in their personal health and wholeness and be contributors to their families and communities.

According to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, 11% of the adult homeless population are veterans, which translates to about 40,056 people. 

There are about 1.4 million other veterans that are at risk of homelessness because of poverty, lack of support systems, and poor living conditions.

Roughly 45% of all homeless veterans are African American or Hispanic, despite only accounting for 10.4% and 3.4% of the U.S. veteran population, respectively.

The standard program plan covers nine months of residential recovery and one month of aftercare, however, all recovery plans are uniquely structured per the needs of the individual. 

Here are some of the services we offer to construct robust individualized treatment plans:

Since 2010, Harvest House Has Served Over 300 Veterans

Veterans deserve respect and recognition for their service to our country, but more so, they deserve to live healthy and fulfilling lives after their service has ended. In reality, far too many veterans fall into a cycle of poverty and homelessness.
