Hope • Healing • Growth
The Twin Stream Learning to Live Ranch is a haven for nine women in recovery. We provide a family like environment focused on fostering
relationships and encouraging individual
growth and healing.
8:00 am Breakfast
Staff, Volunteers and Residents sit down together to enjoy a healthy breakfast featuring our own farm fresh eggs and other goodies.
8:30 am Morning Meeting & Mediation
At morning meeting, the community gathers to learn about the day’s goals, activities, and share the 5-day weather, and “farm sightings”. We end each meeting with an inspirational quote and serenity prayer.
9:00 am Work Program
Whether it’s collecting eggs, fieldwork, barn work, working the mobile framer's market, or working on a team, it inspires a sense of dignity, self-worth, and pride in doing for oneself and others—important prerequisites for healing. The social interaction, exercise, and skills building of the work program play an important role in a resident moving toward personal independence.
11:00 am Recovery and Wellness Activities
This time brings the residents together to enjoy various activities that promote recovery, fitness, nutrition and diet, recovery support, life skills, and transition services.
12:00 pm Lunch
Everyone gathers for lunch and midday break.
1:00 pm Work Program
We resume our various work team activities until 3:00 pm. Whether it’s feeding animals, making cottage goods on a farm team, or maintaining the grounds & fences, or planting and harvesting produce on the farm, there is always work to be done at on the farm.
3:00 pm Ranch Break
Each day the ranchers gather for refreshing drinks and snacks while talking about the day and enjoying one another’s company.
4:00 pm Relaxation and Dinner Prep
Each day at this time, the residents clean up and prep for a family dinner which is severed at 5:00pm sharp.
5:00 pm Dinner
Whether it’s family-style dinner in the dining room, or a cookout outside, the meals served are always prepared featuring the food we grow and raise on the farm, with an eye towards optimizing health for all on the ranch.
6:00 pm Evening Animal Care
Just like our residents are learning to care for them selves, they are also learning to care for other things that depend on them.
Outside Meetings and Recreation & Relaxation
There is always something going on in the evenings, whether it’s attending a 12 step meeting, a trip to the park for a community hike or swim, or to a local fair, relaxing in the living room watching a movie, reading a book, or playing games, or sitting around a campfire outside.
Our Residents know how to work hard and have fun too!
