Help transform the greatest number of lives possible ... because everyone deserves a life of dignity and hope
We believe in people.
And we believe that it is more effective to create something new, than to try to ‘end’ something as complex as homelessness.
We recently purchased the 193 acre Woodwynn Farms, and are developing a therapeutic organic farm community for the homeless, offering an opportunity to change lives with educational and work programmes based on responsibility, dignity, independence and the principles of peer-to-peer help.
We are like a family. The affection, understanding and support that every person receives are daily examples of the kind of selflessness that cannot be considered a simple exchange because it can only come straight from the heart.
There is no single, failsafe recipe that can save everyone, only a fundamental rule – Respect and Unconditional Love.
The road that people have to travel can be long and complex, but the aim is to help them become aware of their true potential. Outcasts that have been overcome by life’s difficulties are encouraged and supported through trust and dialogue. All those who enter Woodwynn will find a home, health and legal assistance and the chance to study and receive vocational training.
Work skills, Community, Self-Respect and a deep understanding of Sustainability are fundamental to reintegration into society.
