Cultivating healthy people and communities through urban organic agriculture.

Transforming Lives:
One by One

Our 2014 Annual Report

Pushed to retaliate when his best friend was killed, Ben turned to Growing Home to help him find his way.

Dana spent years sleeping on couches because she
couldn't afford to pay rent. Now she and her
daughter have a place to call home.

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

“I know I can deliver a powerful message.
And Growing Home is part of that message.”

When Miriah started at Growing Home, she had three goals:
find a job, get her son back, and have her own apartment.

Donate today to share our impact and help us grow.

From unemployment to entrepreneur, this
graduate started her own sweets shop.

OUR IMPACT

"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."
