Transforming Lives:
One by One

Our 2014 Annual Report


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


Donate today to share our impact and help us grow.


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


Plant, Learn, Work,
Transform, Grow

Watch to learn how our USDA-certified organic urban farms create leaders, transform communities, and change lives.


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.

Our new logo

Growing Home is thrilled to unveil our new logo!

After 10 years of work in Englewood we’ve freshened up our image to prepare for the next chapter of growth and another decade of building healthy people and communities.

Conceptualized collaboratively with our staff, Board of Directors, and Associate Board, we believe our new image represents our stature as an established and accomplished organization, and communicates the intersection of people, communities, and farming that serves as the foundation of our work.
