Sometimes students just need space. Dragonfly owns a thirty-acre ranch located just outside Klamath Falls. When students need a softer transition to Dragonfly, The Homestead can be an option for up to eight men. While enjoying a smaller community, students at our young adult transitions program can immerse themselves in the gardening schedule, work on maintenance projects, cook, attend group therapy, and develop relationships with their peers and the Dragonfly team.
The Homestead also welcomes those wanting a break from life in town or those who want to be more engaged in farm work.
Our students have the opportunity to work at our farm where we grow fruit and vegetables and raise animals. The produce is available to families in the Klamath Falls community and our students. The farm crew sells produce at the local farmer’s market during the summer. Farming is a nice complement to therapy.
Working the farm is a great way to shift from the wilderness to Dragonfly Transitions.
One way to cultivate change in students is to encourage them to dig in and contribute to the life of their community.
