Bonny Lea Farm has been empowering people of varying abilities with opportunities to learn, grow and succeed since 1973. Our organization has been built by people who believe in personal dignity and worth for those living with disabilities.
Participants come from all over Nova Scotia and beyond to access our unique programs:
- person-centred choice-driven individualized approach
- life skills for independent living in their chosen home
- meaningful work opportunities in our social enterprises
- holistic enhanced programs (such as spirituality, communications and counselling)
- community engagement.
For some Bonny Lea Farm has been a stepping stone towards independence in the community. For others, we have been home for nearly 50 years.
When you give to Bonny Lea Farm you are part of an experience that changes lives.
Together we make a difference.
Every day at Bonny Lea Farm hopes are realized and dreams come true for adults living with intellectual disabilities.
Hope for a home.
Hope for meaningful work.
Hope for a welcoming community.
Hope for independence.
Hope for new friendships.
When Dan finished school he and his Mom hoped to find a place where Dan would feel at home. They hoped to find a place where Dan could learn and grow. They hoped to find a community that would engage and empower him.
Today, Dan is living in one of our group homes with four other participants. He is learning new life skills, making decisions and gaining independence. He is also making friends and enjoying work. His personality and sense of humour are enjoyed by his housemates and staff.
Dan’s future is bright here at Bonny Lea Farm.
You can help us keep that hope alive for other people with disabilities by planning a gift now or leaving a gift in your Will.
