Donate Today To Transform Lives

This holiday season we need to raise $200,000 to support the growth of our job training program and our fresh, healthy food access initiatives in Englewood. We ask YOU to help us reach our goal.

Right now your dollar can go twice as far because we have a MATCHING GRANT! Every donation from a new donor, or any increase over your donation last year, will be matched 1-to-1 up to $25,000.

Donate $100 or more, and we’ll send you a FREE TOTE!

Lyntoi’s Story

Lyntoi struggled with alcohol and drug addiction for over 40 years. It began when a family member sexually abused her from the age of 9 to 13, keeping her quiet with alcohol. Addiction led her to periods of homelessness, a criminal record, and more sexual abuse. When Lyntoi got sober and found Growing Home, she knew she found a second chance. Today, Lyntoi is celebrating 3 months at a job she loves, 22 months sobriety, and a new apartment.

Wherever I go in the next five, ten, twenty years, it's always going to come back to this. To Growing Home.
Because there's something that you all saw in me, and your hearts went out to me. People don't have to do
something like that if they don't want to. They do it because they believe someone like me deserves a
second chance. Growing Home gave me a second chance.
