About Us

Home Grown’s Mission is to “Build community-based interventions to help homeless youth attain stable housing and break the cycle of homelessness.”

Home Grown uses the host home model which pairs transition-aged youth (18-24) experiencing homelessness with community members in Humboldt County who have extra space in their homes. This approach allows youth to obtain access to stable short-term housing (3-12 months) while building meaningful connections with caring adults in their community. Youth choose who they will live with and understand that this is an interim step in their long-term housing plan. While youth are in the host home, Home Grown’s case managers work with them on pursuing their housing, academic, and employment goals; saving up extra income; and searching for long-term housing.

Our host home program empowers youth to find their own path out of homelessness—we provide stable housing, build trusting relationships, and assist with academic, employment, and other goals related to independent living.
