Who We Are
“To see a community inspired and empowered…”
“To provide hope and opportunity to people with disabilities…”
“We recognize and celebrate the dignity and value of every human being…”
Every year thousands of students with disabilities are aging out of high school
with few options for employment or contribution.
The general consensus is that individuals with disabilities are unable to contribute.
At Healing Farms we don’t believe that.
We are striving to meet the needs of those students in the
Charleston area by doing the following.
Rather than going to a “place” and performing a “task”, our participants join a small group made up of four to six young adults with disabilities, a facilitator, and one to two volunteers who share similar interests. We believe friendships foster trust and inspire our participants to take on new challenges…
Camp ABILITY is our summer day camp designed for individuals with intellectual disabilities who are still in high school ages 17+.

We love watching the inspiration unfold as volunteers come to Healing Farms. The impact our buddies can have on those around them is amazing- and many times what they teach us is far more valuable than any lesson we’ve set out to teach them. We need volunteers for all sorts of things, from working directly with our buddies to helping in the garden, selling salsa at area events, and serving as drivers. We know there are many worthy organizations you can volunteer with- and we thank you for considering us!
