Life at the Farm

The routine at Hope Farm revolves around a structure of Counseling, Christian Practice (regular prayer times, study & discussion, church attendance), farm work, shared meals, and interaction with a wider community. Each resident receives regular individual sessions with our certified counselor in addition to a number of weekly groups related to recovery, spiritual formation and relationships.  Featuring continuous staff coverage our residents are, from intake to a staged re-entry to the wider community, supported in their recovery journey.

Program & Schedule

The program at Hope Farm is six months long; a three month Stage One with a fixed schedule, and the opportunity to transition to Stage Two during the following 3 month, which allows the resident up to three days a week of school or off-site work. For residents who have completed Stage Two and feel the need for added time to consolidate the gains made and contribute back to the community by way of peer support, they are able to apply for Stage Three. This entails up to an additional six month period where he works or attends school while remaining engaged with the Farm community.
