Growing Home offers dual-generation programs to nurture children, strengthen families, and create community.  Growing Home’s wrap-around approach serves the whole family with intensive supports to overcome immediate and long-term obstacles.  Early childhood interventions nurture children from birth through age eight with evidence-based programs that help prepare young kids for kindergarten and keep older kids on the path to success.  Supportive services strengthen families during times of crisis by offering food, temporary housing, healthcare, and homelessness prevention assistance.  Growing Home works to create community by supporting neighborhood leaders as they learn to leverage their collective power to improve conditions for themselves and their neighbors.  Growing Home combines high quality direct service strategies with efforts to advance systems change as we work toward equality of opportunity for all.
