Join me in supporting real change. Let’s support good in the world and make a difference. Help us reach Magnolia Harbor Carefarm's goal for Giving Tuesday!
Our mission is to be a sanctuary for all living beings. We provide therapeutic services to people who have experienced trauma or traumatic grief. Traumatic grief includes losing a child at any age or losing a loved one to murder, suicide, substance use, or any sudden or unexpected way, such as a car accident. We are one of only two carefarms focusing on traumatic grief in the United States. Our practice goes beyond the four walls of a typical therapeutic office to combine carefarming (caring for rescue animals, animal-assisted therapy, therapeutic horticulture/gardening, and ecotherapy), contemplative practices (meditation, yoga, grounding, support groups, etc.), and physical well-being (exercise, play, massage, healthy diet, sleep, psychoeducation, etc.).
In the past two years, Magnolia Harbor Carefarm has:
Rescued 42 animals and started several therapeutic programs.
We have created programs specifically for bereaved parents, those who have lost someone to suicide and substance use, as well as our widows and kiddos retreat.
To date, we have conducted approximately 2,800 hours of therapeutic sessions, as well as 150 hours of pro-bono counseling service to families who could not afford to pay.
We started a volunteer program in November of 2021.
Since that time, we have held 24 Community Volunteer Days and logged about 1000 volunteer hours.
