In doing our outreaches to the homeless, Harvest Missions Center has encountered many women in need of temporary shelter. Furthermore, due to safety concerns for children, our local thermal shelter does not accept children. Therefore, parents are sleeping in vehicles or tents with their children during the winter.
Bithiah House is an emergency shelter for women and women with children. Meals are provided as well as case management services to help individuals obtain housing.
As our nation experiences a great housing shortage, it is becoming increasingly more challenging for low income individuals to maintain housing. Using the recovery housing model, SHEP will help individuals to recover from homelessness. SHEP will lease homes and place individuals accordingly.
For example: a security deposit, first months rent and furnishings can be a barrier to obtaining housing. SHEP will help them get in the house and assure they are stable
Exodus is a faith-based substance abuse recovery program. The program utilizes evidence-based curriculum in a faith-based setting to provide a comprehensive recovery journey. We believe that we must address the soul wounds that are at the root of the addiction as well as giving tools to prevent relapse. As they participate in the program, clients will…
Ø Attend one individual and one group session per week
Ø Develop an in-depth relapse prevention plan
Ø Identify destructive behavioral patterns and how to break those patterns
Ø Identify points of wounding and begin the process of healing those wounds
Ø Create a Personal Development Plan which will address physical health, emotional/mental health, spiritual health, social skills, education and career goals
Ø Participate in soft skills development (i.e. communication and conflict resolution).
Ø Be randomly screened for substances
Our outcomes are measured utilizing the Treatment Outcome Package assessment tool. TOP provides frequent feedback as to the effectiveness of our classes so we can continuously improve how we serve our clients.

Not all of the next generation of servant leaders are walking the halls of ivy league schools. Many of these potential leaders are sitting in jail cells, residing in tents or under bridges, trying to string together a few days of sobriety or are stuck in life due to their frustrating circumstances. We want to recruit these individuals and empower them to be agents of change in their communities.
Recruits will be trained in areas such as sustainable agriculture (with a focus on controlled environment agriculture), food security, conservation, emergency management, general construction (including welding, electrical, water and waste management), community health services and humanitarian project support (i.e. security and administration). All recruits will receive Red Cross Certification in CPR and First Aid as well as FEMA training in disaster preparedness and relief.
After training, our recruits will have a solid workforce foundation and the skills needed to bring about change in their communities
