Case Management at the Farm
Case management is a collaborative and planned approach to recovery that ensures a person gets the services and supports they need. The goal of case management is to empower people, draw on their strengths and capabilities, and promote an improved quality of life.
Our experienced Case Manager assesses the individual needs of each guest, refers them to services, helps coordinate physical and mental health care, provides guidance in determining life goals, and focuses on growth, life change, and sobriety.

A Woodshop For Skill-Building and Healing
The goal of the woodshop program is to provide men with the technical and emotional skills necessary to be successful in many types of jobs. The Blanchet Farm woodworkers create exceptional goods like Adirondack chairs, custom benches, cutting boards, and novelty items, that are sold to help support our mission.
Our residents learn in an environment that empowers them to be as independent as possible in the workforce. We use woodworking as a way to reinforce the social and communication skills needed to keep and maintain a job in the future.
