BENEFITING: Echoing Hope Ranch
Echoing Hope Ranch is a community that is providing services to individuals with autism and developmental disabilities in Hereford, AZ. In addition to providing Residential, Day Programs and In-Home Services, we have recently started providing Vocational Services as well. We have been able to start a Community Supported Agricultural (CSA) program at the ranch with the help of many. This wonderful program offers low-stress jobs to both individuals with disabilities and veterans as well as opportunities for community members to enjoy some of the fresh produce grown at the ranch. Community members can purchase a share in our crop and each week shareholders receive a basket of fresh produce. Gardens are in the process of being planted with the hopes that we will be able to begin selling shares for a January launch. Although we have had much support in the launching of our CSA, we need additional assistance so we can continue to make this program a success and provide a better of quality of life to the participants working in this amazing program, and well as providing a wonderful service to the surrounding communities.
