Young people have been busy at the farm. Let us show you what they have been up to!

Metalwork 400 x 400

As part of drug and alcohol rehabilitation at Triple Care Farm (TCF), young people are given the opportunity to develop educational and life skills.

At a recent visit to the farm, students showed us projects they have been working on in the big woodwork and metalwork shed on the property.

One young person created a metal flower which she wants to give to her mother as a gesture of thanks and in an effort to help mend their relationship. The road to TCF has been tough for her and the family and it was wonderful to see her put in such an effort to thank her mother.

Another student was busy hand crafting a wooden box to give to his three year-old daughter. He was working on the final touches of the love heart shaped handle.

Each and every young person has a story worth hearing. It's a courageous step to admit that help is needed and to spend time in an unfamiliar environment to work on recovering from drug and alcohol abuse.

The projects the young people were working on serve as a reminder that your support not only touches their lives, but the lives of their families and friends too.

Thank you.
