Our hope is to one day build a community center on the farm. This space, designed to be accessible to those with physical and cognitive disabilities, will help us to become a hub of learning, growth and community life. Through partnerships with local universities, nonprofits, and other institutions, the community center will offer classes, workshops, community events, and other opportunities where our Core Members and others with disabilities will enter into meaningful working, learning, and community relationships with new people.
Peacehaven began piloting a job-preparedness program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the summer of 2019. This job program, formerly known as, "Julian & Friends," has now blossomed into R.I.S.E. (Reaching Interdependence, Skills, & Employment). Learn more and get involved HERE
Vocational Training on 20 Acres
In 2016, Peacehaven received a gift of 20 acres of defunct nursery land. We plan to revitalize this site and create a horticultural-based vocational training day program for adults with disabilities.
We plan to build several more houses on the farm. Believing that choice is an important aspect of life, these houses will offer adults with disabilities several different housing options. The Core Members and Home LIfe Leaders who live at Peacehaven will be a dynamic and lively community, working and living together and modeling a sustainable life.
