About

You can help adults who have intellectual and developmental disabilities have a meaningful day. We need your support to help our Growers participate in the community and Farm activities they love.

You can join our Growers as they do their community service projects like Meals on Wheels, Central PA Food Bank, Paxton Street Ministries, and many more including several local nursing homes. You can also help them enjoy recreational activities like bowling, movies, libraries, and even museums, or just enjoying one of our local parks.

On the Farm you can help our Growers take care of their animals and gardens, participate in cooking and crafting activities, or just enjoy the day among their friends.

Hope Springs Farm is a 17 acre family Farm redesigned to accomodate the program for our Growers. As you can imagine a Farm like this always need something fixed. If you are handy with tools we need your help to keep the Farm in good shape for our Growers to enjoy.
