Programs: To serve our mission, Growing Home is committed to: --Developing innovative urban agriculture initiatives with economic development potential --Offering a transitional job program targeting individuals with multiple barriers to employment --Working in low-income communities --Creating green jobs and stimulating economic opportunity via an organic agriculture social enterprise

Mission:
While homelessness and poverty are the result of complex economic and social forces, one major cause is the lack of accessible jobs that pay a living wage. Growing Home, which began operating in 1998, has developed a unique approach to job training and the creation of employment opportunities that will lead to stable employment and help people ultimately find permanent housing.With the rising demand for organic products, Growing Home decided to establish an organic agriculture business, as a means for training homeless people and providing them with jobs.
