A Place to Recover and a Place to Serve.
The Mission Farm experience is an essential part of our recovery model for the homeless and one of many programs that sets this Mission apart. It's also an invaluable volunteer opportunity to meet other people looking to serve the Lord!
What the farm generates is nourishing bodies and souls. Over 30,000 lbs of produce was harvested last year and served right here in the Kitchen and Community Food Basket Programs. But more importantly, this unique setting allows homeless people a chance to trade the distractions of the city for a more quiet setting. One that allows God to speak to the heart. It's a unique opportunity to see roots take hold and new life blossom in nature and in the lives of people we serve.
To date, God has blessed our Mission with a farm cooperative. It works because of the talents of people like you. People committed to investing in the lives of the most needy. Volunteers have the opportunity to effect change and touch lives. The Mission Farm program is a key component in helping the Mission be more self-sustaining.
