Located at 3650 17th Street in Sarasota, the $2.5 million project started in fall 2021. Halfacre Construction Company performed the site development and construction of the new pre-engineered metal structure. Zoller Autrey Architects was a partner on the project.
As the first infrastructure expansion dedicated to wraparound support services, the Life Enrichment Campus will now serve as a hub for the community to access supportive and affordable housing, nutritious groceries, life-skills support, addiction recovery and more.
Currently, Harvest House provides life enrichment activities to more than 150 clients weekly. 100 of these clients attend classes five nights a week with no existing classroom infrastructure.
"We have built a place where love is louder, and the light is brighter," said Erin Minor, chief executive officer of Harvest House. "For decades to come, the LEC will be a symbol of breaking barriers to human prosperity. Even after 31 years of serving the community, Harvest House is just getting started."
A ribbon-cutting and grand opening event was held on Friday, March 17. The event attracted over 50 guests and included light refreshments, a stage lighting demonstration and a quartette performance by Upward Notes. Local nonprofits were also in attendance to share their mission with attendees.
