Vocational Program Fund

The Langton Green Community Farm provides meaningful work and relationships for the individuals we serve. The individuals we serve worked more than 2,800 hours at competitive wages at the Farm this year—thanks to your support!

Your gift to the Farm’s Vocational Program Fund helps us provide wages for individuals who would not otherwise be compensated for their hard work.

Langton Green Farm’s Vocational Program is just one of the ways that we demonstrate our commitment to individualized programs for each person we help.

Individuals who choose to work at the Farm share in so many rewarding experiences:

  • Sustainable growing and harvesting of produce for Langton Green’s homes
  • Produce donations to the wider community
  • Engaging with educational groups
  • Working side-by-side with volunteers

Langton Green Farm’s Vocational Program is just one of the ways that we demonstrate our commitment to individualized programs for each person we help.

Meet James, who works at the Langton Green Community Farm. . .

… James’ dream job is one that enables him to earn enough money for a well-deserved vacation—for the first time in his life. He saves what can from his job at the Farm. How does your gift help? Your gift pays for James’ wages. Of the many individuals who receive services at Langton Green, James is different … he found a well paying job at the Farm that he loves. Yet the cost of paying individuals like James and our growers minimum wage is not covered by state and federal funding.

Your gift to the Langton Green Farm Vocational Fund means that James can keep a job he loves.

Since James started his job at the Langton Green Community Farm he has developed a new kind of confidence. His contribution to our Farm’s community is real—his work is meaningful; he has impact. The Langton Green Farm’s Vocational Program builds his self-esteem, step-by-step. We are there to guide and mentor James—and all of the individuals we serve at Langton Green—every step of the way.

This kind of meaningful work and purpose are just as essential to health and happiness as covered services. They connect us, show caring, support and generosity—a spirit of community.

 

Thank you for your support!
