DIRECTOR'S NOTE
Transformation Success
 "Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen."  Jude 1:24-25 

I am honored to present to you our third graduating class for 2014! Chris, Sarah, Jeffrey, and Kenny (pictured left to right) have successfully completed phases one and two of the Transformation Program. 

 Our star graduate is  Sarah: Sarah completed the  normal 6 month track in just 5  months due to her  perseverance, renewed  esteem and faith in God! She  has been a light in our  program and has a bright  future ahead. Sarah had a  great start in our program as a  transfer from the Dove’s Nest. Special thanks to Reverend Marciano for his partnership and invaluable friendship.Chris and Sarah will move on to permanent housing with friends and family and Kenny and Jeffrey have been promoted to our extended phase, which will allow them 6 additional months of housing and community care. All of our graduates will receive 6 months of follow up and aftercare as needed, thanks to the continued financial support of our donors! 

My favorite part is that ALL of our graduates are employed full time with an average wage of $10.00/hour! Think of what that means considering that when they came to us they were homeless, unemployed and did not have a plan to turn their lives around! To God be The Glory for the things He has done!
 
Please plan to join us in congratulating each of them, as representatives of the great work we have been commissioned to do, at our Love Thy Neighbor event on October 28 at the Knight Theatre.
 
Blessings,

It is with great excitement that The Harvest Center of Charlotte announces our "Double the Harvest" Gift Matching Campaign!

We are so thankful to The Leon Levine Foundation for their partnership and recent grant of $30,000! In order to inspire more of our friends to support our life-changing work, $10,000 of this gift must be matched, dollar for dollar, by December 31, 2014.

At this time, your gift will go further than ever. Please help us serve compassionately and empower more people in our community affected
by homelessness, unemployment, and poverty. We work to see their lives transformed through the love and ministry of Jesus Christ. 

 
 Partners like you and The Leon Levine  Foundation make it possible for us to  continue providing over 40,000 hot meals  per year,  weekly educational and life skills  classes, job training and networking,  transitional housing, and spiritual guidance  to those coming through our doors. Let's  Double the Harvest together!
