Healthy Living Programs

Buy a survivor and her family a meal or give them a gift card, you feed them for a day or maybe a week. Teach them to grow their own food and you feed them for a lifetime.  - Julie Shematz, MA

Our Healthy Living Program not only provides organic food for survivors and their families, it teaches them about holistic wellness, nutrition, and homesteading. Additionally, it provides evidence based therapeutic interventions utilizing nature.


PHASE 1:  Raised Garden / 25 cubic feet  (Approximate cost:  $400)

PHASE 2:  Chicken Coop and Run  (Approximate cost:  $400)

PHASE 3:  In Ground Garden / 75 square feet (Approximate cost:  $400)


Since 2005, we've been providing survivors and their families with gift cards for meals and groceries.  Once the card is depleted and food consumed, the client and her family are faced with the challenge to acquire more food as this is a basic need.  The typical cost of a gift card is $100.  From 2010 through 2013, we averaged providing direct assistance to 15 survivors and their families a week.  

While we have already been coaching clients about holistic wellness and nutrition, having a source to provide healthy food and teaching them to grow their own food is more practical and beneficial on multiple levels.

We rely on private donations.  Will you consider partnering with us today?
