WHY THE F.A.R.M?
Despite tremendous obstacles, African American and minority communities are resilient, and if provided with adequate and culturally competent resources, would thrive. At The Foundation for the Advancement and Rehabilitation of the Marginalized (The F.A.R.M.), we have taken steps to fill the void with programming that chooses to specifically address the needs of families seeking to improve their skills, knowledge and education in ways that benefits the entire family unit.
