- North Carolina
The mission of Benevolence Farm is to cultivate leadership, promote sustainable livelihoods and reap structural change with individuals impacted by the criminal justice system in North Carolina. We accomplish our mission through a range of programs, including our founding residential program which provides an opportunity for women leaving prison to live and work on a farm where they grow food, nourish self, and foster community. Our vision is to create a more equitable, just, and nurturing world for women and the communities they transform. Stable housing and gainful employment are critical for the successful transition of women returning from prison. Benevolence Farm seeks to fulfill this crucial need in North Carolina through an innovative social-enterprise based program that will offer housing, employment, life skills, career development, and nutritious food while providing naturally grown, local food to the community.
