Live Learn & Lead start up fund! 

A therapeutic farm for developmentally disabled
Live Learn and Lead wants to spread our message of hope and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in someones life impacting the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world.

Live Learn and Lead is in the beginning phase. The farm will offer a life sharing work environment in an atmosphere of beauty, warmth, and respectfulness. Members are valued and all encouraged to explore and contribute to a meaningful and challenging life. The members will gain the skill set and confidence needed to build themselves up. This will also allow the community to work with the farm to help teach skills such as resume writing, cooking, home care, mechanics, animal care, and farming. Live Learn and Lead will work with local employers that can offer entry level positions for its graduates. Helping build work experience will lead to a stable income and housing.

Live Learn and Leads program transforms the whole person: mind, body and spirit. We empower individuals to function at their highest level of effectiveness, leading to a more satisfying, self-reliant, and independent life.
