Home for Opportunity featuring Allison Hawthorne of Homefields: Episode 111

September 25, 2023

Homefields is an award-winning non-profit organization dedicated to creating new life options for people who have disabilities. Six adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities live on a 19-acre property in Millersville, PA, in a modern ranch house and 1800s farmhouse. Hundreds of people who have disabilities or other barriers to traditional employment have engaged at Homefields Care Farm, growing chemical-free produce for community shareholders for 30 years.

Join the fun at their Picnic at the Farm happening on September 24th, 2023. It’s an outdoor celebration of food and community, with live music, games, activities, and a menu that spotlights the bounty of Homefields Care Farm. 

Proceeds go to the maintenance of their homes, property, and care farm, providing options for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
