Join the fight against homelessness

Jacey graduated after completing the Farming Hope training cohort and gaining full-time employment at a local edible landscaping company. His favorite new thing? Taking his kids to the farmers’ market.

“Because of Farming Hope, I’m sniffing flowers on the street and identifying them and making salads and eating healthy and my friends can’t even handle it.” — Jacey, 2019 graduate gainfully employed

Farming Hope is different — we pay and employ formerly incarcerated or homeless apprentices while they learn in our apprentice program. Paying people makes sense, but costs dollars.

Our goal is 20 new apprentices in 2020. Here’s how you can sponsor the next Farming Hope apprentice, like Jacey:

  • $4,800 covers wages for an apprentice during the entire 12-week program.
  • $400 provides one week of on-the-job training.

A monthly donation, even a modest commitment, is most helpful, by allowing us to better budget and predict our fundraising.

Every dollar helps us with our mission to employ and empower our neighbors who are experiencing or at-risk of homelessness. Your donations give us the chance to run our training program and to continue to build a more engaged community.

Farming Hope is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit  — 100% of donations are tax deductible. Farming Hope’s federal tax ID is 83-2393341.
