Mission Statement

Home Grown Host Home’s Mission is to "Build community-based interventions to help homeless youth attain stable housing and break the cycle of homelessness." Our vision is to see " A community actively engaged in ending youth homelessness by mentoring, advocating for, and opening their homes to youth in need." Our Values are: Inclusion: We acknowledge that privilege exists in our society and actively work to promote equitable access to resources. Youth Centered: We seek out, value, and incorporate youths’ voices into our organization. Community Building: We work to foster community by creating opportunities for connection, relationship building, and a sense of belonging for our youth. Transparency: We operate openly and honestly. Empowerment: We aim to give youth the knowledge and power to make informed choices about what is best for themselves Respect: We value, listen to, learn from and appreciate each other, our youth, our board, our donors, and our community.


Home Grown uses the host home model which pairs transition-aged youth (18-24) 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.
