Harvest Home, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization that brings hope to the hopeless while training others to do the same. Established in 1995 by Danny and Rhonda Calhoun, the ministry has a proven track record of working faithfully with those who have been exploited and are often considered unworthy by society.
Our vision is to bring hope, healing and restoration to primarily women and children by leading them to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe we can best accomplish our vision by providing a safe, loving, Christ-centered community of life-changing ministries.
We accomplish this by providing housing, therapeutic work, inner healing, equine encounters, creative arts and discipleship for the spirit, soul, and body through an intimate relationship with Jesus and the Father through His Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God. We believe that He voluntarily gave up His life in order to offer us the free gift of eternal life.
We believe that God is a healing, saving, delivering and redeeming God. We believe in faith, hope and love and that the greatest of these is love!
Our Father’s Farm
Harvest Home purchased Our Father’s Farm in 2007. This beautiful 347-acre farm is dedicated to helping those who have been abused and/or rescued from sexual exploitation. These precious ones receive personal God encounter sessions, equine ministry, creative art, music, dance and lots of tender, loving care by a very dedicated staff!
We are committed to love, honor and embrace those God sends to us. By speaking the truth in love and constantly bringing him or her back to the Father, we walk with the residents into their healing and freedom. How do we do that? By His grace.
Safe, Nurturing Community:
We provide a safe, thriving community where people can go through the painful ups and downs of the healing process and still be accepted and loved.
At Harvest Home our healing ministries include:
Healing for spirit, soul and body. Trained facilitators teach the residents how to encounter God in a personal experiential way. 2 Cor. 3:18 says we are transformed as we behold the glory of the Lord. That is what God encounters are all about—getting into God’s presence and learning how to stay there. Hundreds of men, women and children have been healed through this simple, yet highly effective method.
Bible-based Discipleship & Life-skill Training:
Our devoted staff challenges the residents with bible studies and classes. We also offer practical training in areas such as computers, money management, car maintenance, job search, cooking, sewing, gardening, farm-life, parenting, nutrition and other life management skills.
In ways we cannot explain, something happens when you put a horse with a hurting heart. Through natural horsemanship principles and equine care, the broken encounter the Father’s love in dynamic, restorative ways. It is beautiful to watch both old and young encounter their good, loving Father God through His majestic equine partners.
Music & Art:
The Arts are often able to reach people in ways words cannot. Trained facilitators offer classes on encountering God through art, dance and music, which often helps the hurting get in touch with emotions they have long since locked away.
Through organic gardening, we are able to strengthen our bodies and bring a self-sustaining aspect to our farm community. Therapeutic garden work is part of the community experience and brings with it many lessons and skills.
As of 2019, we have 12 ministry houses. These houses provide staff housing as well as homes for men, women and children in need of intensive care.
