Emergency shelter is the safety-net that keeps families off the streets. Emergency housing of this type is a vital tool in the fight against homelessness. Harvest House’s Family Haven provides free housing and support services for families who have nowhere safe to sleep. Harvest House provides critical case management services to connect the family to child care, medical care, counseling, job training, and other services that will stabilize families and help them find permanent housing outside the shelter.
Families who are in need of emergency shelter should call 211 for services at the Family Haven.
We are one of the only organizations in Sarasota who purchase run-down apartments and create vibrant, affordable housing specifically for homeless families, and include stability services on-site.
