Project Horseshoe Farm is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with sites in Greensboro and Marion, Alabama and a coming site in Pomona, California (Summer 2020). Since our founding in 2007, Horseshoe Farm has been dedicated to strengthening communities, improving the quality of life of our vulnerable neighbors, and preparing citizen service leaders for tomorrow's communities.
By mobilizing some of the most promising aspiring service leaders in the nation and teaching them to work effectively with the strengths of communities, Horseshoe Farm is creating a new model for improving community health and preparing tomorrow’s service leaders.
Project Horseshoe Farm's programs are tied together by a pioneering paid gap year Fellowship for top recent college graduates from across the country. Fellows learn to work at a local level to effectively support health systems, schools, community organizations, and people. With the Fellows as a backbone, Horseshoe Farm also offers internships for undergraduate, graduate, and health professions students interested in community health leadership.
We believe that a generation of students stand ready and eager to build a better future in healthcare, in education, and in communities across our nation and we are working very hard at Horseshoe Farm to provide direction, teaching, and support to help them fulfill this mission.
