MISSION STATEMENT

To encourage, educate and assist in the improvement of our most natural resources: Family.

We are committed to providing workshops, housing opportunities, resources and referrals specific to our target population of adolescents and adults, some of whom suffer from chronic incarceration, mental health, medical and substance abuse related illnesses. The FARM will serve to cultivate an environment of positive pro-social change in communities stricken with poverty, regardless of one’s background.
