Project Horseshoe Farm is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with sites in Greensboro and Marion, Alabama and in Pomona, California. Our mission is to work with and build on the strengths of local communities, improve the health and quality of life of our vulnerable neighbors, and prepare citizen service leaders for tomorrow’s communities.

One of our nation’s greatest strengths is the way many people in local communities quietly care for and provide volunteer service to their neighbors, especially those who need a helping hand. This is reflected at an institutional and professional level by the teachers, healthcare providers, and other local service leaders who quietly and without seeking attention or recognition stretch themselves beyond what is required in order to provide compassionate individualized care and service to their students, patients, and others they work with in their local communities. 

To help build on these strengths, Horseshoe Farm partners and brings our time tested approach to extending individualized relationship focused care and service to children and vulnerable adults in local communities. We believe that by focusing on our fundamental role of volunteer service to our vulnerable neighbors, Horseshoe Farm provides an opportunity to reinforce and strengthen our social fabric in a way that cuts across differences between us that can sometimes divide us.

Our approach includes an educational grant supported “gap year” Volunteer Service Fellowship that is mobilizing a generation of top recent college graduates from across the nation to serve others as they learn about Horseshoe Farm’s approach to helping others and strengthening community health. This upcoming year, HSF is offering our traditional Gap-Year Fellowship, which will begin June of 2022 and finish July of 2023 at the Greensboro, Marion, and Pomona sites. For applicants who are available and interested, we are also offering a 6-month Fellowship opportunity in Greensboro from January through July of 2022. It will be shorter, but similar in experience to the full year Fellowship. The application deadline for the 2022-23 gap-year Fellowship is on February 13th, 2022.
