Family and Children’s Center (FCC) has been collaborating with Clearwater Farm for over ten years. Hundreds of FCC clients have spent countless hours volunteering at the farm. They have been involved with animal care, gardening, grounds maintenance, and special events throughout the years. Our team leaders have taught FCC clients many different life skills such as the responsibility of caring for animals, mowing lawn, and growing healthy organic food.
FCC clients have helped care for our farm animals EVERY SATURDAY for the past 12 YEARS! Rain or shine! Even on cold, snowy days! The animals have showered these young adults with love and affection. This unconditional love has been a joy to watch unfold. Most of the kids have a favorite animal at the farm, and their interactions are priceless. Most of the kids have never had “hands-on” experience with farm animals before volunteering at Clearwater. This volunteer opportunity is the kind of experience that they will never forget.
