Lets Celebrate the Season!

On Friday, September 13th, we will be hosting our Inaugural Signature Fundraiser – the Harvesting Hope Celebration – at our Homestead located at 2185 Manitou Rd. We hope you will consider supporting our event by sponsoring or donating an auction item. Our event will include harvest tasting stations, live auctions, silent auctions, live entertainment, an opportunity to operate an excavator and more!


Thanks to the Donald & Maxine Davison Foundation, we have a $200,000 Matching Grant Opportunity for 2019 Capital Improvements!


Help us GROW our facility year round by supporting the build of the Forever Homestead, an addition and renovation to our existing 1871 Historic Estate Home.


What is Homesteads for Hope Community Farm?

A Distinctive Place to Learn, Work, Live & Grow!

  Homesteads for Hope is developing 55 acres of Possibilities; an Inclusive Community to serve people of all abilities.

Homesteads for Hope is a 501(c)3 non-profit Community Farm creating effortless inclusion with a distinctive place to learn, work, live and grow for people of all abilities in the Greater Rochester Region. H4H was founded in May of 2013 by a mother and daughter team which today has grown into a community of diverse families and parent professionals. 

The Community Farm experience promotes skills-training, socialization, self-awareness and career exploration on an organically practiced farm; offering effortless inclusion with its many collaborative partnerships within the greater community. As the demand for self-directed and inclusive community services continues to rise, particularly for young adults, Homesteads for Hope will provide high quality services to people of all abilities.
