OUR PROGRAM

With a mission to help LGBTQ vulnerable adults transform their lives within a safe and supportive community, our holistic program is designed around four pillars:

  • Farming – Utilizing the farm as a teaching environment to connect with nature and experience hands-on agricultural education
  • Arts – Harnessing the power of the arts to stimulate creativity and facilitate healing
  • Wellness – Providing a menu of options for mind, body, spirit care to enhance self-awareness and promote healthy relationships
  • Life Skills and Vocational Training – Learning and developing key competencies for employment and personal growth while creating vibrant and sustainable lives

Residents and participants will engage in programs designed to help them achieve desired outcomes, including: gainful employment, healthy relationships, self-acceptance, or reconnecting with family. With an instructional staff comprised of professionals, working artists, teachers, entrepreneurs, farmers, and healers, participants will gain valuable experience and the necessary skills to live productively with renewed confidence.
