At Happy Hill Farm, we’ve been helping kids succeed for more than 40 years. Our programs seek to serve the whole child—building academic and life skills, as well as caring for their emotional and spiritual well-being through our school and farm. These children have so much potential, yet their opportunities are buried in poverty.
Happy Hill Farm is home to one of the only boarding school programs in the world that takes zero tax dollars and does not rely on tuition for funding. Almost 85% of our boarding students are on scholarships provided by caring donors. For 43 years, thousands of boys and girls have received education, guidance, and the support they need, regardless of their financial situation.
Also, because our campus includes a working farm, animals are important to our life skills training. Horses, cows, sheep, llamas, and alpacas roam the hills and are a huge part of our FFA program.
Today, we are excited to introduce the newest member of our animal family—rescue dog Duke! He’s been great for our kids. While taking care of any animal teaches compassion, dogs provide such a calming presence in the life of a child.
Watching Duke interact with our students on campus has taught me a few simple truths: Dogs provide healing, hope, and security to kids. This is why we rescued a dog like Duke and brought him to live at Happy Hill Farm. But we need your support.
Would you consider a gift today to bring joy to deserving children through love from animals like Duke? Together we can continue to build an environment that has a positive impact on kids’ lives and futures!
With deep gratitude,
Director of Development
