Mission Statement
Harvest Home, Inc. brings hope to the hopeless while training others to do the same. 
Background Statement
Harvest Home was birthed in the summer of 1995 after God invited Danny & Rhonda Calhoun to lay aside their occupations and give themselves to the hurting and hopeless on a full-time basis. With very little money and a few dedicated friends, they stepped out in faith and began organizing outreaches to  help meet the needs (physical, emotional and spiritual) of children, the homeless, widows, single parent families and others. 
  • KID’S EXPLOSION: (1995-2006) teams met in low income neighborhoods each Saturday morning. This Sidewalk Sunday school taught biblical principles through bible stories and served lunch and love to the children.  
  • HOMELESS OUTREACH (from 1995-2007): Armed with clothing, blankets, the good news and hot meals a large group of volunteers reached out to the homeless in a place called Jurassic Park downtown Kansas City.
  • FOOD AND CLOTHING MINISTRY: (1996-2006) provided groceries and clothing to people in need.
  • ADOPT-A-FAMILY: (1996-2007) pairing volunteers with the lonely and hurting, which provided emotional, spiritual and financial help to widows and orphans.
  • LITTLE SISTER'S OF THE POOR OUTREACH (1997-2007), volunteers were paired with forgotten senior citizens at a local nursing home.  
  • BAKERY BLESSINGS: 1996-2004) showing local law enforcement officers that they were appreciated and not forgotten. Every week, a very large basket of homemade goodies and handwritten cards were delivered to the local police station.
In 1998, Danny & Rhonda began teaching and publicly speaking. Over the  past 20 years, Rhonda has written dozens of books, and training materials on inner healing.
Jesus is the best healer, counselor, psychologist and doctor there is.  Therefore, all healing methods are based on teaching, equipping and leading others into an experiential, personal relationship with the Lord.
October 17, 2007, the Lord provided the funds to purchase 347 acres debt-free. As of 2018, the ministry has grown to 15 ministry homes, 5 horses, 20 full-time staff, a number of interns & volunteers.  Thousands of men, women and children have been healed through Encountering God sessions and through the love of God.
Impact Statement
Our top accomplishments in 2017 would be the transformations that occurred in the lives of the residents of Our Father's Farm.  For example, a 15 year old girl, whose eating disorder had escalated to such a point that she was about to be admitted to the hospital, arrived with no desire to live.  In just a  year, the Lord healed her heart and restored her joy! She is now home with her wonderful family and THRIVING! And she is one of many.
Another impact is the annual trainings we provide. We are blessed to be able to offer our services on a donation basis to leaders, pastors, counselors and anyone who desires to effectively minister to the hurting.
Another very exciting accomplishment is the addition of a healing track for young men. Presently (2018), we have the privilege of providing life-giving mentorship to seven young men who have chosen to join us on their healing journey.  In all that we do, we keep the focus on loving Jesus and each other!  
One of our goals for the very near future is to complete construction on The Refuge building (10,000 sq. ft.), which will be a home for young ladies who have been rescued from human trafficking. 
Another goal is to build an outdoor picnic area with a pavilion.
And last but not least, we would love to build an indoor horse arena so that we can continue our therapeutic healing sessions irregardless of the weather. 
Needs Statement
Our current financial needs are:
  1. The Refuge is a 20,000 square foot building with two floors. The top floor (10,000 sq. ft.)  is completed and used as a dorm and training center/gathering place. The first floor, which will be home to young women who have been rescued from human trafficking is under construction. To complete it, we need  carpet and appliances. 5,000 sq. feet of carpet, padding and installation: $60,000.  
  2. 2 stoves, 2 refrigerators, 2 dishwashers, 2 microwaves, 2 freezers, 2 sinks: $7,500.   4 Washers and 4 Dryers: $5,000.
  3. Finances to complete the King's Garden. The 3 tiers of ground have been leveled and are ready for the next phase which is to build a stone baptismal pool surrounded by a seating area, a large variety of beautiful plants, flowers, trees and a walking path.  This garden is situated in the front "yard" of The Refuge.  A truck load of stone $6,000. Baptismal construction $6,000. Plants $7,000. 
  4. Because of the nature of this ministry, we often have girls who must have extra security measures. Therefore, we need a fence and security gate at the farm entrance $4,500.
  5. Volunteers for: art, dance, music, gardening, yard work, orchard maintenance, horses & hair cuts.
  6. A large outdoor pavilion with 10 picnic tables $12,000.

Areas of Service
Geographic Area Served Narrative We are located in the heartland of the USA in Holden, Missouri.  Our service area crosses all geographic boundaries.  We have had residents from many states and in the past ten years from countries such as Singapore, China, Australia, Sweden, South Africa, Israel, England and Haiti to name a few.  We have had residents from in country from multiple states in the last ten years since we opened our doors.  
CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement Harvest Home Inc. was founded  in order to make a difference in the lives of those who are in need of intensive care. Our desire was and is to provide a safe, healing community that would be available to anyone, irregardless of their financial means. Because we are debt free and only grow as the Lord provides, we are able to offer help and a residential facility on a donation basis.  We have learned that we are most effective when 3 basic principles are present in the lives of a resident: 1. They have a heart of gratitude. 2.  They are teachable.  3. They have a strong work ethic.  If those 3 are present or they are willing to develop them, we see transformations.  It is our joy to walk with the residents daily and take advantage of many teachable moments.  We minister to the complete person--spirit, soul and body. Living in community, with Christ as our center, challenges both residents and staff to walk in a culture of honor. Residents are given the time they need to face their past and find healing--however long that may take. A big part of that healing comes from living in community with godly shepherds who faithfully love their sheep, which is who we are. 
There are certain traumas such as sexual exploitation, physical, emotional or verbal abuse and gross neglect that so damage the soul that they can only be healed by Jesus. After 23 years of ministry, we have come to believe the most effective and life changing way to healing is by having a personal, experiential encounter with God. Therefore, our residents have weekly God Encounter sessions with a trained facilitator. 
If a resident does not have a personal relationship with the Lord, they are presented with many opportunities to accept or reject His free gift.
Our inner healing model is based on 2 Cor. 3:18, "But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit."
As the residents behold the glory and kindness of the Lord, over time, they are transformed into His image. That transformation includes healing, restoration and true freedom.

Short-Term Success
As the residents walk through their healing journey, we consistently see the following transformations: feels safe in their homes and with people, greater confidence, the ability to laugh, the capacity to build life-giving relationships, establishes healthy boundaries, participates in community life, takes responsibility for themselves,  develops an intimate relationship with God, is able to receive correction and the freedom to express themselves in a way that honors both God and others. Like a caterpillar fighting its way out of a cocoon, the residents increasingly come into a place of great freedom and spiritual beauty. 
If a resident will stay with the program and not quit, God will transform, heal and deliver them 100% of the time. That is the beauty and power of beholding the Lord. 
Long-Term Success
The fruit from God encounter sessions are numerous: the past is healed, addictions are overcome, self-harm falls away and eating disorders cease.
JULIE'S TESTIMONY: I came to Harvest Home with years of childhood abuse: abandoned by my father, abused by uncles and being trafficked by my mom. My practiced survival skills stopped working after years of counseling. I struggled with suicidal thoughts.
I felt safe on Our Father's Farm. Safety is a valuable gift for the deeply wounded. I found the Lord in powerful ways as I processed my pain. I discovered He has never left me alone. These encounters brought deep healing to me. I'm not the same person I was when I first came in 2011. Each time I attended training, participated in a program, or received God Encounters I received more healing which has helped me love and give.
I am using the skills and tools I received to help others. The impact on my life is amazing, but to watch the multiplication of that impact on other is priceless.
Program Success Monitored By
Program success is monitored by our trained facilitators, staff and Pastoral Care Team, which is a team of leaders who meet regularly with the residents. In addition to the Pastoral Care Team, there are daily interactions with the residents by staff, house leaders and community service leaders. Not much gets past us :-)
Examples of Program Success
MARY'S TESTIMONY: When I was 14, I joined in the fun of séances and ouija boards. I believe that opened a door to darkness in my life that shifted everything. Right after that, I was offered marijuana. With that first hit, my ankles collapsed under me and everything changed in my life—everything! People say pot is nothing, but I’m here to tell you that it can open the door to anything goes. My 4.0 average fell to 1.8 and my attitude changed dramatically. I was angry and rebellious. Then I was taken advantage of by someone in authority. For the next 5 years, I did as much drugs as I could because I didn't want to live. For the next 26 years, my life was a destructive roller coaster.
I came to the farm barely hanging on. It felt like my brain was cooking from the inside. Through God Encounters, I found freedom and peace. God has restored me and my love for people and relationships. I never thought that would be possible. I am now on staff and helping others find the same freedom!
Interacting with a horse can be a vital part of healing for many individuals.  Working a horse on the ground, running your hands over the horse while grooming, feeling the movement of the horse beneath you while riding can calm the mind and heart. Horse encounters often enable the person to connect with their emotions. The trainer then helps them bring those feelings to the Lord.
How a person relates to, rides and interacts with the horse can parallel what is going on the inside.  For example, an angry person may pull the reins harshly while a timid person may refuse to direct the horse. The Lord often uses the horse experience to help a person see what is difficult to face within.  Many times, healing happens because of the trust and emotional bond between the person and the horse. Confidence is built and joy is felt as they challenge themselves and overcome their fears. Horse Encounters are all about a partnership between the person, the horse and Jesus.

Short-Term Success
Transformations can happen suddenly.
We have seen many changes happen with just one encounter with a horse or pony, as in the case of  a 6-year-old girl named Kylee who had been sexually abused and would scream any time anyone touched her. Desperate for help, her parents brought her to meet Princess the pony. We had rescued Princess from an abusive home a year before. As Kylee brushed her, she kept asking, "Am I hurting her?" She was repeatedly assured Princess liked to be brushed. The trainer realized Kylee asked because touch meant pain. She told Kylee how someone had once hurt her and Princess, but God had made the pain go away and He could take hers too. Kylee looked at Princess and said, "I won't ever hurt you." She threw her arms around the trainer and shouted, "It's doesn't hurt anymore!" She then ran to her parents and they tearfully hugged as she cried, "It doesn't hurt anymore!" After a dozen or so pony encounters, Kylee became the happy little girl she was before her abuse. 
Long-Term Success
Simply being with a horse can work wonders in the lives of many people. We have witnessed many residents come alive through interactions with these gentle animals.
TESTIMONY: Elizabeth, adopted at 8 from an extremely hard life, decided she was going to starve herself to death. At 9, to keep her alive and out of the hospital, we hand-fed her every meal. While our other daughter was having a horse session, Elizabeth stared at Happy, the pony, who was eagerly eating his oats. I was shocked because Elizabeth rarely engaged in the world outside of her head. As I approached her, I heard in my heart, “Happy is a happy eater and he finishes all his food.” I told my daughter. She exclaimed, “That’s EXACTLY what I just thought in my head! How did you know, Mommy?!” We talked about how God talks to us and how He loves her. As a result, that same day Elizabeth started eating and finishing her food. That was three years ago and today Elizabeth continues to be a happy eater and finishes all her food.
Program Success Monitored By
Because we live in community and have daily interactions with the farm residents it is easy to monitor the success of our programs. We are aware that not everyone enjoys being with a horse. We are also aware that many people seem to be powerfully impacted by horses. Each resident is required to have at least one horse encounter. If the interaction is positive, then they will continue. This is determined by their response, input and what the trainer/facilitator observes. 
We closely monitor the fruit of each resident as they interact with both horse and trainer/facilitator.  
Examples of Program Success
There is something that happens between a horse and a human that can't be explained. If you've ever had a positive experience with a horse, you know what I mean. Often, residents share their secrets after being with a horse and sometimes they share those secrets with the horse first. The trainer is then able to help in the processing of that pain. Horse and rider often build a deep friendship that brings deep healing, confidence and even joy. 
The evidence of success is in the eyes of the rider and the smile on his or her face and the transformations that take place.
THANK YOU LETTER: I just want to thank you for taking the time for my daughter, Phoebe and for me. Since Phoebe has met you, Prince and Princess, her confidence  has grown by leaps and bounds. She has so much less fear now. The brave Phoebe we always knew was there has emerged since her first lesson. Blessings to you--we will always remember you and your kindness!

Art Encounters are a very effective way to express your feelings without words.  Being creative primarily uses the right side of the brain, which is where creativity is stored, empathy, feelings and emotions. As the residents are creating art, it often opens the flood gates and allows suppressed pain and sorrow to come to the surface.  We use all types of art forms, pastels, water colors, clay, wood, stamps, glitter and even things found in nature.  Each week the residents have a two hour window to create their masterpieces. Often, the encouraging interactions between the residents are just as beautiful to behold as their artwork.

 It is easy to see the impact art has on the residents. Many save their artwork and happily display it. Many times they paint their lives,  their feelings or their day. For some, it's one of the highlights of their week. 
Long-Term Success
One way we know creating art has an impact on the residents is by seeing their art framed, or given as a gift or put in a scrapbook. It is well known that being creative has a very favorable impact on the human heart.
Program Success Monitored By The art instructors are very attuned to each resident and make sure it is effective and beneficial. 
Examples of Program Success
Framed art hangs in nearly every house on the farm as residents proudly present the work of their hands. For some, they've never experienced being celebrated or praised and for others they've never felt a sense of value or giftedness.
Synchronized dancing is all about the brain and not the dance. A 2003 study in New England Journal of Medicine by researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine discovered that dance can decidedly improve brain health. Synchronized dancing not only improves brain health but it also increases joy capacity. Dance expression is a win-win for all involved.  Joy capacity is important because a residents joy capacity is connected to the amount of healing a resident can handle.  If their capacity is low its a slower process.  If you can get their capacity to grow or go higher, they have the ability to process more trauma.  The residents have dance once a week for a two hour period.

Short-Term Success As resident's join in synchronized dancing, joy increases and bonding happens. For some residents, dance class is one of the highlights of their week.
Long-Term Success
Many times, when new residents arrive, their experience with dance is negative and sometimes even destructive. By teaching synchronized dance, we can change the past and turn what was harmful into something that is actually life-giving. In this way, we are taking back what was stolen from them and giving them something that is actually good for them.
Program Success Monitored By
 The staff and dance teacher monitor the weekly class and individual residents.
Examples of Program Success A RESIDENT'S TESTIMONY: The time set aside and dedicated for dance has been very healing and redeeming for me. Dance was not a pure thing in my past and I never knew dancing to be innocent, let alone a way to intimately connect with God in a way that's holy. Our synchronized dance class is a time of such inner joy, not only for me, but also for my two-year-old son who is already very gifted in dance.
We desire to honor the Lord in all that we do whether it's art, horses or gardening. The Heirloom Gardens are one of God's many blessings on Our Father's Farm! The fruit and vegetables from the gardens produce nutrient rich food and a lot of healthy work for staff and residents. As we dig in the dirt together, God often speaks to us. There are so many lessons to be learned through gardening. Jesus said in John 15:1 "I am the true vine and My Father is the Gardener". We have come to believe that is true in an experiential way as we grow together with Him.

Short-Term Success Each summer we harvest large amounts of a great variety of fruits and vegetables. For many residents, the feeling of success and pride is obvious. And working in the garden is a very effective method of teaching a strong work ethic and perseverance.
Long-Term Success The Heirloom Gardens have been in existence for nearly 10 years. Growing food organically and providing food for the 15 houses on Our Father's Farm is a big event each year. Residents discover the joy of growing their own food and learn how to plant, weed, water, prune and harvest the great variety of foods we grow. We have a very large garden, a large orchard and two big blackberry patches. Growing plants and digging in the dirt often touches residents in surprising ways. Just being outside in the fresh air with the sun shining is healing in and of itself. 
Program Success Monitored By The gardens are monitored by a staff member who teaches, instructs, oversees and provides hands-on training to residents and staff. The time spent working in the gardens is extremely helpful towards building godly character, patience and endurance. The fresh produce is wonderful but the change in the lives of the residents is even more wonderful!
Examples of Program Success Residents learn to work hard without complaining. They learn to be responsible. They learn how to grow their own food and take care of it. They learn how to work as a team. And when the food is served there is a very clear sense of accomplishment and gratitude.

CEO Comments

When my wife and I began Harvest Home, Inc. in 1995, our desire was to simply unconditionally love hurting people into the arms of God. That hasn't changed. If anything, it has grown. Therefore, all that we do is steeped in the truth that there is only One who can love this way perfectly. With the help of 20 full-time staff, 15 ministry homes and the Refuge Training Center, we are able to lovingly lead, train, disciple and facilitate the healing of men, women and children.
We are unique in a few different areas 1. we are completely debt free.  Because we are debt free we don't have to charge the residents or the conference participants a set fee. We do take donations and will make our needs known in our newsletters or private conversations.  All staff are 100% volunteers, no one gets any pay check.  They are given any money that comes into the ministry that is from their supporters.  There is no time limit on anyones progress. A challenge we face is waiting and not losing hope when we are in the middle of a project. 
  1. We are debt free. All of our homes, property, vehicles are paid for.
  2. We don’t charge the residents or staff for any of our services, which allows those with no finances the opportunity to get the help they so desperately need.
  3. To teach responsibility and to break any entitlement issues, we do ask the residents to make a suggested donation of $300 per month. If they are unable, we provide opportunities, on and off the farm, for them to earn their donation.
  4. We don’t purchase or build anything unless the money/supplies are provided.
  5. We haven't had a fund raiser. All of the funds for the 470+acre farm, 15 homes, Refuge Training Center and vehicles have been given as the Lord leads people to give.
  6. We don't advertise. Residents come to us by word of mouth, “friend of a friend”, pastoral referral, or by someone who has attended one of our seminars or been a farm resident in the past.
  7. No one draws a salary. From the top down, our staff raises their own support. Eight of our staff have served alongside us for over 10 years.
  8. We are more than a "hospital for the heart", we are also a training center to raise up other leaders to go and do the same.
  9. We are more than a training center, we also live in a multi-generational community of like-minded followers of Christ who have willingly laid down their lives so that others might find theirs.

Organization Comments
17Because we are visionaries, we are constantly challenged to wait for the Lord's provision. We are also stretched and challenged by the numerous weekly requests from men, women and youth asking for help. We are often at capacity, which means we are unable to offer residential care to all that ask.
There are some things that would make life on Our Father's Farm even better than it presently is: The Refuge Training Center first floor completed, a new 80 horsepower tractor or a Bobcat front end loader, a security gate at the entrance with fence, and a pavilion for outdoor fellowship and activities.
