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.

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.
