Snell Farm Children’s Center

Snell Farm Children's Center

The mission of Snell Farm Children’s Center (SFCC) is to equip youth with the skills needed for returning successfully to their families and communities. Youth who come to SFCC have experienced severe life circumstances that may include abuse, neglect, domestic violence, mental illness, and family substance abuse. Our integrated treatment approach includes helping youth understand how their own trauma relates to their harmful behaviors and, most importantly, to develop productive ways to cope with their past trauma, present-day stressors, and future challenges. Our rural 170-acre farm campus provides a safe and healthy environment where these youth can overcome trauma and learn positive values.

[The teachers] won’t let you fail unless you make the choice to give up and not do your work.” — Anthony, SFCC Graduate
