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.
Canopy: Temporary Housing for Families
Leveraging the support of 800 volunteers, Growing Home provides children and their families with up to three months of temporary housing and guides their move out of crisis.
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.
Life Skills Classes
4-6 week classes and short seminars educate families on nutrition, finances, healthy relationships, and employment/job searching.
Twice monthly, children and adults receive free medical services through our medical clinic, now conveniently located at Growing Home’s facility in Westminster.
