    Current update for May, 2020: Our community continues to be healthy, there are no sick, and there have been no active Covid-19 cases. We are adhering to all protocols and our residents and staff are isolated in our homes, along with our 9 volunteers from other countries who are doing an amazing job of supporting our residents during this challenging time. We feel confident in welcoming volunteers now, and are glad to answer any questions and concerns you may have.
    Our mission is to partner with adults with diverse abilities to live healthy, self determined lives. We believe in the potential of every human to contribute and take pleasure in their productivity and relationships, independently of their abilities and disabilities.
    We share our lives with people with special needs and they with us.
    We are a household — a family — bound together by mutual respect, work and love.
    The most important thing in life is relationships. Everything else is how we put substance and value around those relationships.

    Located on an organic farm in rural Western Massachusetts, our organization is focused on whole food nutrition. Our day program features a weavery, life skills lessons, hikes, visits to the gym, and participation in our greater community programs such as horseback riding and performing arts.

    Volunteers are important members of our team. In exchange for housing, food, and a $200/month stipend, our volunteers provide our residents compassionate care and companionship. We are eager to welcome new volunteers for another great year at the the Home.

    Because this program is a longer stay, volunteers get to really learn about our beautiful region of the county. They also have the chance to learn about organic foods, healthy lifestyles, and how to see the world from a new perspective. Also, volunteers have access to the free English classes offered at the local school.

    Volunteers are given 24 vacation days (when volunteering for 12 months) in addition to their 2 days off each week. These vacation days are often used to travel. The Berkshire region of Western Massachusetts has amazing music and arts entertainment. We are also very close to NYC and Boston for more fun. For quieter moments in time off, most folks enjoy visiting the gym, museums, and libraries. There are great options to explore here.
