Surrounding the houses, we are developing a shared urban homestead which includes extensive gardens, a mini-orchard, berry patch, rainwater catchment, a flock of laying chickens, miniature dairy goats, and honeybees. We garden and care for backyard animals not only to provide healthy food for guest families and resident volunteers, but also to inspire people to connect to the abundance of the land.
Guests are typically African-American or Latina single parent families who live onsite for up to two years. Guests leverage a more stable future by paying down debt, saving funds for future housing, and improving their English language skills. We receive referrals from local community partners.
We welcome visitors and volunteers to help year-round.
