Growing Us Home is a Charitable Organization focused on helping the homeless population in the United States obtain security through agriculture and adequate housing. We believe that homeless does not mean hopeless. Through sustainable communities, we aim to empower individuals with the skills and resources they need to succeed. Though for most people, these communities will only be temporary stepping stones, Growing Us Home communities are not just shelters, they are homes. We strongly believe that establishing a foundation based around Sustainability and Regenerative Agriculture will be the key to our success.
The main objective of Growing Us Home is to acquire a plot of land that can be used to grow food and provide housing for people. The majority of the funds will go towards the land itself and the infrastructure for housing, energy, water, and food production. As we are growing and are raising funds for our overall goal, we will also be serving our local communities by providing food, clothing, and seasonally appropriate goods. As we are located in New Jersey, some of the major communities we will be serving for the time being are Camden and Philadelphia.
Once we establish our first successful community, we will take this idea and expand it throughout the United States. At Growing Us Home, we strive to promote good health for our communities and our environment so that we may provide a safe and sustainable place for those in need. Our goal is to have the necessary funds raised by the year 2025 and to have a functioning community within a year of purchasing the project’s land.
While Growing Us Home is in its startup stages, we see this as an opportunity to truly transform the lives of those in need. In the meantime, we are actively helping the homeless members of our local communities while we establish our first Growing Us Home community.
