In the summer of 2004, two women—a counselor and a fifth grade teacher– dreamt of how they could be of greater service, in a larger capacity, to children with emotional and behavioral disturbances.
Harvest Outreach is that dream made manifest.​


​​Since its inception in Fall 2004, the Harvest Outreach Center has grown from one program with two employees to now offering six programs over 30 employees. Currently, Harvest serves 70-85 children and families on any given day. This is an accomplishment, considering the program began with only 5 children.
