"This program helped me become a professional. I have a 401k. I have good benefits. I’m proud. My mom is proud."


Donate today to share our impact and help us grow.


"I like to give people
perspective on change,
let them know that change
is possible."


“I always had the drive to better
myself, but Growing Home gave me
the tools and really brought it out of me.


"I want my kids to see me out here working so they can be motivated to do the same thing."


Cultivating Connections:
Bobby, Demetrius, and Ricky

Hear the stories of three men who found friendship, support, and success through Growing Home’s employment training program.


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.
