Harvest House’s five-acre downtown Bradenton campus for addiction recovery was recently renovated due to support from the Manatee Community Foundation and the Bank of America Charitable Foundation. The campus needed $30,000 worth of repairs and upkeep—including installing new appliances, redoing the floors, a fresh coat of paint, purchasing new furniture—and more than $2,600 of energy efficiency upgrades. The Manatee Community Foundation awarded Harvest House a $10,000 grant to help fund the repairs and upgrades; a few weeks later, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation awarded Harvest House $20,000 to complete the project.
Since the downtown Bradenton Jim Russo Campus was gifted to Harvest house in 2018, the program has served more than 250 clients in addiction recovery. The campus will now serve 26 women who are working to recover from addiction to drugs and alcohol.
