Harvest Home transforms the lives of homeless pregnant women and their children by providing housing, support, and programs that equip women to become great mothers.
Harvest Home begin in 1985 with one woman taking a courageous step to impact the community around her. Local Santa Monica resident Christy Minder encountered a young woman on the street who was pregnant, frightened and alone—with no place to call home. Seeing the woman’s potential, Christy extended her home and her heart to this young woman, inviting her to live in her home for the duration of the pregnancy. This one selfless act birthed Harvest Home’s program which has served over 540 families over the last 30 years.
Since 1989 Harvest Home has operated from a residential home on the westside of Los Angeles. Our home provides a safe and nurturing environment and allows us to serve up to 10 pregnant women and babies at a time and up to 30 women in a year.
