Harvest Commons Residence

Harvest Commons Residence opened in 2013 and provides a setting in which men and women who have successfully completed the St. Leonard’s House and Grace House programs can find continued support in their journeys toward independent, whole lives. This is accomplished through the provision of safe, affordable, appealing housing accompanied by a comprehensive program of supportive services which are developed and conducted in conjunction with those provided through St. Leonard’s Ministries.
