Katie's Place provide a community farm environment for participants with various levels of mental disability.

Nestled in Blue Ridge Katie's Place operates with the help of Hope Tree Family Services.

Volunteers work together with participants to develop skills and strengthen abilities through brain focused skills.

Future goals for Katie's Place include a fully functional farm and full time weekly support services. Right now participants visit Katie's Place on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Fresh eggs are a part of the farming process and help the group raise money and work on budgeting skills with participants.
