Collaborating with Growing Food – Growing People

The Haven of Grace provides holistic services to pregnant, homeless women who desire to eliminate societal barriers.  Our residential center is impacting the community by implementing life-changing strategies.  Community partners assist in many ways, including our collaboration with “Growing Food Growing People.”

With the inflated food costs and the Old North area where The Haven of Grace is located being in a food desert, young mothers are being mentored on how to feed their families in an inexpensive way.   Even the children here look forward to family fun in the garden picking fresh strawberries.  This gardening collaboration offers therapeutic healing to families as they learn about making healthy food accessible.

The Haven of Grace staff works vigilantly to improve the lives of mothers and children by providing long-lasting services and resources. Our moms are enjoying menu planning, hands-on cooking classes, and fun with their families.
