Operation Grow is a project of many programs. Providing support to women in the Midland area, this transition home becomes a place for personal development, security, and empowerment. With the goal of becoming a self sustaining facility, vertical farming and associated retail allow for guests to develop knowledge and pride in responsibility while giving back to the community. A community kitchen and yoga room provide liberating spaces to dissolve food insecurity and enhance sense of self.

Through the work of Huronia Transitional Homes women can be employed with a living wage, increase their knowledge on growing sustainable food sources and develop assets to building economic resiliency. Operation grow provides a comfortable space for women to build peer-relationships, confidence, dignity and autonomy.
