Modeled after a successful program from Europe, we are offer a day program that takes people out of their home to spend a day on one of the 5 farms in the region. The purpose of the program is not paid employment, but to work on personal goals in the environment that a farm provides. For some, these goals may be simply to have fun and socialize, for others it may involve building strength and skills that may lead to employment. Yet others may use the programs as a form of respite.
We work together with many local providers and case management organization to ensure that our programs connect with existing programs of care, rehabilitation and prevention. Our programs have high standards regarding safety and compliance with the rules surrounding health care and vocational rehabilitation.
These programs are currently offered in Flathead and Lake County.
