Many of those we will take in as residents here have never lived where it is green and peaceful and quiet. Many have come from traumatic childhoods, or from war zones, and may be both mentally ill and suffering from addiction and drug abuse. Many of them have been sleeping wherever they can on the streets of San Diego. Many have never known love. But when they leave here we want them to look like this and have a skill or a trade that will support them for the rest of their lives.
Farm kids agree there is no better way to grow up than working beside your family and learning the value of hard work. I loved growing up on a farm! Values of hard work ethics are priceless, especially when started young and critiqued with age.
