SGUK Impact of Archewell Foundation – A Series – Part 4

Harvest Home and The Love Land Foundation

Episode 100



Hello everyone, this podcast is continuing our series of looking at community organisations that the Archewell Foundation have assisted over the last 3+ years, and organisations who Archewell Foundation have partnered with.  The aim of this series is to highlight the impact of the work being done day in day out, behind the scenes, without fuss.  People just out here on these streets, uplifting others in a variety of ways.  For a company so young in its lifespan, Archewell has achieved so much, but you never see those who should be looking at the societal group that taxpayers have to fund with no say in whether or not that is what they want to do, ever writing articles or discussing Archewell business in anything but negative rhethoric.

UK Media, ie tabloids owned by people who live and pay taxes outside of the UK, have hands in deep pockets in the UK establishment, to help push certain agendas.  The UK tabloids, are the mouth pieces for this activity, and the UK Monarchy is the figurehead, in partnership with various UK governments for decades.  The reason why people who are paid to write about and glorify the UK Monarchy spent every day writing and pushing certain agendas against anyone who is seen to stand in their way of pushing the agenda that guides the country in a designated direction.  A direction which benefits a few, and certainly not the vulnerable and struggling members of the UK population.

The number one target for the last 7 years has been the youngest son of the current King.  Prince Harry had the nerve to marry a bi racial woman, and after 3 years of abuse centred on his wife and child, and him for not breaking up his marriage and supporting the establishment line, he and his young family chose to escape the UK for the sake of their mental health.  We all know the stories of their movement across continents being hounded by UK press all the way, to now, where they own their own home, and they work and pay taxes in the USA.  The family have been self financing since 2020, and are already set for life if they never work again.  Despite the many poison arrows which continue to be sent from the UK to the couple who will not bow down to their wishes, the Harry and Meghan are doing wonderful things in their philanthropic endeavours.  This series just touches upon a few of those organisations.  There will be more on partner groups coming up in the next few weeks.

This week we are looking at Harvest Home and the Love Foundation.


 The Love Land Foundation


“With the barriers affecting access to treatment by members of diverse racial and ethnic groups the Love Land Therapy provides financial assistance to black women and girls seeking therapy nationally.”

Through our partnerships with Therapy for Black GirlsNational Queer & Trans Therapists of Color Network, Open Path CollectiveBlack Female TherapistsZencare and Psychology Today, Loveland Therapy Fund recipients will have access to comprehensive lists of mental health professionals across the country providing high quality, culturally competent services to Black women and girls. With therapy sessions costing an average of $80 – $200 per session, we have selected the previously mentioned directories to increase the likelihood that participants are able to financially afford therapy after the end of the 4-12 sessions supported by The Loveland Foundation’s Therapy Fund. Black women and girls deserve access to healing, and that healing will impact generations.


If you are a Black woman or girl who would like financial assistance seeking therapy please click here to fill out our Therapy Fund signup form.

Please note: Our Therapy Fund signup form opens on a quarterly basis. Upon signing up, you can expect to receive a follow-up email within three weeks. If the form is closed when you visit, no worries, add your email and we’ll notify you when it reopens.

The website for the Love Land Foundation does not seem as active as I would expect to see, but like a few of these smaller organisations, I can understand why resources are placed in areas that involve their clients, as opposed to their website.  Having said that, I have found their social media account to be very active and up to date.  I would recommend that you visit both their Facebook page and their Instagram accounts for up to date information.  The organisations has many many Followers and the interaction when I looked for this research, was a few hours before I looked through the exchanges and the information.

Here is the front page of the Facebook account:-

Lots of information and imagery on both accounts.  Please pay them a visit if you can.

Harvest Home




As soon as you access the website, this quote is prominently displayed.  It tells you exactly and clearly what the aims and objective of this organision is all about. Ie


Transforming the lives of homeless pregnant women and their children.”

Our Mission

Harvest Home transforms the lives of homeless pregnant women and their children by providing housing, support, and programs that equip women to become great mothers.

The Need

The LA County Health Department reports that each year 5,000 women experience homelessness at some point during their pregnancy. And, as homelessness continues to rise throughout Los Angeles County, the need for resources for unhoused pregnant women has increased as well.

In 2022 Harvest Home opened our second home, The Pico Home, growing our service capacity from 10 to 28. Through our two-step housing program, we will serve up to 70 families a year tripling our service impact.


The Programs:-

Harvest Home is a residential program that serves unhoused pregnant women and their babies. We offer a nurturing, structured program aimed at helping each woman make changes in her life in order to attain independence and stability.

  • Venice Home: At our Step One home, pregnant women will stay for 30-60 days and participate in case management, therapy and programming to assess their short-term needs and set plans for lasting independence.
  • Pico Home: At our Step Two home, pregnant women and new moms participate in our transitional program designed to fully equip and empower women to establish long term stability and transition out of homelessness by participating in case management, therapy and educational classes. Women can participate in the program up to 6 months after birth.
  • Alumnae Program: After completion of Harvest Home’s Pico Program, women may participate in our Alumnae Program which provides ongoing case management and support, events, and access to resources such as diapers.



We aim to equip each new mom with the education and tools needed to make healthy, loving and intentional decisions for her child. We provide childbirth classes, doula support, infant care classes, parenting groups and mentoring to each woman as she prepares for the journey of motherhood.


We aim to help each woman develop a plan for long-term financial independence and stability. Through our program, we provide the structure and education needed to help her implementthis plan. We encourage participation in employment programs, GED completion, certification programs, and credit repair. We provide a match savings program and a monthly budget plan for each woman, teaching her basic money management skills.


Because many of our clients have endured trauma and abuse in their lives, we aim to provide avenues through which each woman can seek healing, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and learn how to manage her emotional and mental health. During her time at Harvest Home, each woman participates in individual therapy free of charge. We also provide classes on emotional and relational growth, anger management, and conflict resolution. Recovery and support groups  are available to residents as needed.


We aim to help each woman make healthy and informed decisions for her body and for her child’s health. At Harvest Home, each woman participates in a nutrition class, a weekly cooking and meal planning rotation, and yoga classes.


Harvest Home is a Christian organization that serves all women, regardless of religious affiliation. We aim to be sensitive and respectful to each woman’s individual spiritual journey, and to provide a home where each woman can find healing, encouragement, and hope for her future.


Our Services

Case Management — Through weekly case management sessions residents create a plan for long-term stability and work to achieve tangible goals related to the five program areas.

Therapy — Each resident engages in a minimum of one hour of therapy weekly provided by our therapist.

Classes — Classes are offered on-site 3-5 nights a week and correspond with five program areas. Classes include topics such as therapeutic parenting group, safe people, infant care and development, nutrition, breastfeeding support, prenatal yoga, computer skills, budgeting and financial independence, job development skills, and more.

Connections and Referrals — Additional resources are available through partnerships with other community-based organizations.

Alumnae Program

In-home visits — Alumnae engage in structured home visits with a Case Manager for the first year after graduation from the program. Our Case Managers help graduates find resources and build connections within their new community after leaving Harvest Home.

Events — Our graduates become a community of support for one another and connect at quarterly alumnae events. Our annual events include a mother’s day event, a backyard bbq, and our adopt-a-family Christmas party.

Resources — On a monthly basis alumnae families participate in Diaper Days. Women are able to request diapers and other needed baby items and visit the home once a month to pick up these items.
