The Harvest Home Discipleship Recovery Program

Before women are accepted into the Harvest Home Discipleship Recovery Program acceptance, they must review our Harvest Home Handbook. If they agree to the terms and conditions of the program, they are requested to submit an extensive application. All applications are carefully reviewed before entry into the program to ensure that all applicants are a good fit for the program.

Harvest Home operates with professionally trained and experienced volunteers who are dedicated to working with survivors in recovery on their healing journey. Harvest Home volunteers stay current in their skills through ongoing trauma-informed care training and other related training such as opioid overdose reversal, verified by the state of WI Department of Health and Human Services.

Phase 1: REFLECTION SEE AND KNOW

Residents who enter our program are often coming off the street dealing with multiple issues including health, mental health, sex trafficking, prostitution, homelessness, identity issues, addiction, and other related concerns. Clearly most women come in a time of crisis in their life. Regardless of how clear we think we define the terms of the commitment one would make; we realize that most of the time, one may not always have a clear enough mind to really acknowledge the magnitude of their commitment. For this reason, we monitor the first 30 days carefully to assess their compatibility with the home and program:

Residents progressing to this phase of the program are now prepared to build on their previous experience in Phase 2 and enter a structured process that fits the individual to set them up for victorious living and restored wholeness. Residents at this phase help other women use what they have learned through the other phases and apply it to everyday life.
