ABOUT


Overview

Working closely with our community, Project Horseshoe Farm was founded on the idea that we must come together as communities around our strengths to meet the needs of our children, seniors, and adults with mental illness.

We believe that grassroots organizations led by community based service leaders are important to providing leadership, structure, and support to help communities more effectively come together to support our vulnerable members. We believe that by working together and sharing responsibility for helping the vulnerable among us, we can create stronger communities and better places to live. Finally, we believe that growing needs and rapid changes in healthcare and education call for new approaches to and a resolved focus on developing and preparing needed community-based service leaders for tomorrow’s communities.

Project Horseshoe Farm is grateful that since 2007 we have been part of a community wide effort to put these ideas into action here in Greensboro, Alabama. Project Horseshoe Farm will continue to strive to work with our community to pursue our organization’s three part mission of Service, Community, and Leadership Development:

Through our service programs, to provide added opportunities and support to members of our community interested in providing help and service to its vulnerable members.
