Harvest Outreach Center is a place where those who understand the blessings they have, come to serve those who are less fortunate. Our desire is to remove the cycle of poverty for those individuals and families by developing a plan for recovery that caused their situation.
Harvest outreach, being led by the lord, is committed to making real change in the lives of those left living at that time under porches, steps, in abandoned buildings, and trying to work until they could obtain a salary from one of the Carpet mills. Harvest Outreach’s call to action speaks for itself to the disadvantaged regardless of race, ethnicity, age, gender or disability and to help integrate those individuals back into society to lead healthy functional lives. We are committed to the men and women bringing hope and resources to those that are suffering. A promise of a better life, along with the tools to build that life in crisis.
Our long term vision has been to give the disadvantaged every opportunity to enter back into society and to provide services necessary to give individuals and families a foundation to regain their dignity and desire to be successful individuals.
