Healing Farms is a local
non-profit that exists to provide hope and opportunity to the special needs
community. Our vision is to see a
community inspired and empowered to see ABILITY first, not disability. To put it simply, we have a heart for helping
our participants and a passion for teaching the community ways that they can
include, support, and love the special needs community also. Our adult day program helps students as they
transition out of high school into adult life.
Every year thousands of special education students are aging out of our local school districts with few options for employment or contribution. The general consensus is that individuals with disabilities are unable to contribute. We don't believe that.
How it Works
Rather than going to a "place" and performing a "task" our participants join a small group made up of 4-6 young adults with disabilities, a facilitator, and 1-2 volunteers who share similar interests. We focus on their gifts and talents while creating opportunities for them to participate in community and grow greater independent living and life skills.
