Homeless and pregnant...

The LA County Health Department reports that each year 8,000 women are homeless at some point during their pregnancy. And, in the city of Los Angeles, there are currently less than 65 shelter beds available for women who are pregnant and in crisis. Of these, Harvest Home provides 10. This means that each year thousands of women lack housing and supportive programming during one of the most critical times in a mother and baby’s life.

Harvest Home is seeking to address this growing gap in services by expanding its services. In 2017, program capacity expanded by 25% by repurposing space in its current home to add two new bedrooms. Phase 2 of our expansion plan includes doubling service capacity by 2020 by expanding to a second home.
