Our Story


Harvest House PEI and Solomon's Porch in Charlottetown serve people struggling with life issues across the Island. The initial outreach was established by Cal Maskery in 1998. Under the direction of Michelle Calder, then Noel Mal, and currently John Bennett, Harvest House Ministries PEI has been a viable catalyst for change in the hearts and lives of hundreds of Men, Women, and Youth. Over all these years we have had a presence in Charlottetown, and in 2003 we opened a facility in Summerside.

Our interest since we established in 1998 has always been focused on helping Islanders to transition from destructive lifestyles to a healthier and more productive life. While we have temporarily sheltered some folks, this has been more of a band-aid and not producing the longer term results that so many more people that we see, are in need of.

In 2013, we were able to partner with the national Coldest Night of the Year walk where 1.6 million dollars was raised for local outreaches like ours across the country. With this added support, which involved almost 2000 Islanders, we have been able to hire an administrator and our director on a part time basis. With the addition of a Program Manager, and Student Life Coordinator, we are now very excited as we get underway with the opening our residential recovery program in December of 2013.  Please pray for us!  Your support will make the difference in the lives of Men and their Families!
