Harvest Home is a Los-Angeles-based residential program providing housing support and programs to pregnant women who are experiencing homelessness.
First Step: The Venice Home
All residents begin at our Step One home where pregnant women stay for 30-60 days and participate in case management, therapy and programming to assess their short-term needs and set plans for lasting stability.
Second Step: The Pico Home
After 60 days, residents take their new steps--to other housing or to our Step 2 Home. At the Pico Home, pregnant women and new moms participate in our transitional program designed to fully equip and empower women to establish long term stability and transition out of homelessness by participating in case management, therapy and educational classes. Women can participate in the program up to 6 months after birth.
