Growing Home transforms lives by nurturing children, strengthening families, and creating community.

Growing Home’s Strengthening Families programs help parents keep their families stable, resilient and healthy.

Interfaith Family Shelter

Leveraging the support of 1,400 volunteers, Growing Home provides children and their families with up to two months of shelter and guides their move out of crisis.

Homeless Prevention

Growing Home works to prevent family homelessness by stabilizing at-risk families with emergency rent, mortgage and utility assistance.

Affordable and Transformational Housing

Growing Home operates 16 affordable and four transformational housing units. Transformational housing residents participate for up to two years. Participants receive reduced rent and monthly case management support while attending school.

Feeding Families Food Pantry

The volunteer-run food pantry serves more than 300 families monthly with a 3-day supply of fresh, healthy, kid-friendly foods that offer long-term benefits. In our unique client-choice model, families “shop” for items that they prefer. We also offer diapers and family hygiene items as needed.

Nutrition Education

A registered dietician offers monthly “food demos” in the waiting area to demonstrate preparation of healthy foods with food pantry offerings.

Life Skills Classes

4-6 week classes and short seminars educate families on nutrition, finances, healthy relationships, and employment/job searching.

Healthcare

Twice monthly, children and adults receive free medical services through our pop-up medical clinic.
