Mission Statement

Triform Camphill Community builds a vital community life that provides each person the possibility for healing, self-development and fulfillment of potential. Triform seeks to create a healthy social environment, where the unique contribution of every person is recognized and appreciated.

Description

Triform Camphill Community, in Hudson, New York, is a residential community for young adults with developmental disabilities. It includes a dynamic mix of over 100 people spanning many generations, cultures and ranges of ability. Forty young adults with social, mental, physical and emotional disabilities, live and work side-by-side with full time volunteer resident staff and the staff’s families on a 410 acre biodynamic/organic farm in beautiful Columbia County, NY. Triform is a model of care where young men and women with Autism, Down syndrome, and other developmental and neurological disabilities participate in dignified, purposeful work, share in warm, supportive relationships and make meaningful contributions to the well-being of everyone in the Triform community. Triform is changing the way we understand and appreciate the capabilities of people with special needs.

Triform is a forerunner and model in the disabilities field, where the ideals of inclusion and the development of individual potential are in the forefront. Triform’s programs promote confidence, self-worth, independence and achievement on many levels. The Triform special needs community offers an enriching social, intellectual and cultural life for its students, and year-round vocational opportunities in organic and biodynamic farm and gardening. Triform is among a select group of farms in the US certified by Demeter, which is regarded as the highest level of organic farming certification in the world.
