Volunteers from local churches and organizations are building the "Farmery", at the Children's Home in Winston-Salem. The farm store will feature fresh produce for the public and serve as a place to recruit new volunteers.
This week, volunteers at the Children’s Home in Winston-Salem are putting the finishing touches on a new farm building. This comes six months after the Home nearly lost its animals and some therapeutic programs for at risk youth.
Leigh Summer and her family volunteer their time each week to take care of the animals at the Children's Home in Winston-Salem. They are also working with other supporters to develop programs that will help keep the animals at the farm.
Children's home volunteers introduce listeners to their animal friends on the farm, and explain why the animals are so important to helping youth who have been abused or neglected.
The Children’s Home in Winston-Salem is getting rid of its farm animals that are used for therapeutic mental health programs on campus. But a group of volunteers and community members are fighting to keep them there.
