THE CAMPBELL FARM offers mentoring, meals and tutoring for young people after school throughout the school year. The program provides transportation to students, tutoring, arts and crafts and a loving multi-cultural community for predominantly Native American and Latino children. Due to the lack of food resources among many of the children’s families, TCF prioritizes mind, body and soul nourishment as one of the main goals for the after school program. The farm provides children with a safe place to do their homework with the support of mentors before being fed healthy dinners and returning home.
In our community 1 in 3 of our youth have thought of committing suicide and 1 in 5 have actually attempted. State Department of Health statistics released in May of 2013 show that in Washington, the rate of suicide among native youth from 10 to 24 years old was more than double the rate of any other ethnic population.
It is our mission to give these youth hope and value in their self worth in order to follow the steps that Christ has prepared for them.
