Students at Harvest Academy work on landscaping outside the house where they live. Residents in the therapeutic residential community spend a significant part of their day on caring for the house and property around it.

The Harvest Academy had a rough start.


Braedon Dowty, who himself struggled with addition, is the manager of Harvest Academy.


Tim Krueger is the CEO of Harvest Academy.


A building on the property is home to a moving business that organizers hope will eventually provide the money to operate the program. The residents are not charged for their living expenses while at Harvest Academy.

A garage on the property includes workout equipment, but residents aren't allowed to use it for the first few weeks after their arrival.


The basement of the house at Harvest Academy includes a library for the men to choose books and space to just hang out.
