About Hope Springs Farm
Hope Springs Farm's goal is to provide adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities or autism a day program to maximize their abilities. Participants, or "Growers," as they are called, are tasked with farm chores, from feeding the animals to weeding the gardens. They learn a variety of home-life skills, such as cooking, baking, cleaning, and shopping. Growers also regularly participate in educational, civic and leisure activities, like visiting the library, swimming, taking field trips, and volunteering in the community.
Since opening in 2004, Hope Springs Farm's Growers have developed a sense of pride and feel like an integral part of the community as they see their contributions blossom and grow.
Hope Springs Farm is a nonprofit under the David and Libby Rosen Center for Healthy Families, a 501(c)(3) organization. The program is operated by Hempfield Behavioral Health, Inc. Please see www.Hempfieldpa.com for more information.
