Q: How can I help?
A: We need donations to build the respite center on the carefarm. We need your help on the carefarm. We need in-kind donations like supplies, landscape materials, tools, animal feed and tack. If you have something to donate or if you’d like to help on the carefarm please contact us at email@example.com.
Q: When do you expect the respite center to be completed?
A: That depends on the success of this fundraising campaign. Our contractor estimates 9 months once we begin construction.
Q: How can I reserve a place and time to come to the Selah House?
A: Please check back here. As we get closer to completion, we will have an inquiry form posted. You can also follow our MISS Foundation Facebook page.
Q: How will my funds be used?
A: All funds will be used toward the construction of the respite center unless designated otherwise.
Q: Is care farming based on any science?
A: Yes! Care farming, as a whole and in its individual components, has been shown to help many vulnerable population groups. Many countries in Europe utilize care farming as a humanistic approach to human suffering in vulnerable groups with tremendous outcomes that reduce harm and help people improve coping. And, care farming costs a fraction of treatment as usual. The average day at a carefarm costs between $60-$150. The cost of treatment as usual in an inpatient setting is about $1000- $1100 a day.

Q: What if I or my business wants to make a very large contribution? Are there naming opportunities?
A: For donations of $5,000 or more, please contact MISS Foundation Executive Director Kelli Montgomery, 512-922-3104, firstname.lastname@example.org for special dedication requests.
