Mandy’s Farm is pleased to announce our selection as an AmeriCorps Planning Grant recipient. This program is overseen by the New Mexico Commission for Community Volunteerism and will prepare Mandy’s Farm to implement a full AmeriCorps program in the following cycle year. AmeriCorps members will be brought on board to fulfill the vision of the Mandy’s Farm VAMOS (Vocational Access and Meaningful Opportunities for Success) Program. In New Mexico, adults with developmental disabilities rely on Medicaid Waiver services to gain access to the community, remain healthy, and obtain employment. The waiting list for these services is over a decade long, leaving thousands of vulnerable individuals without support following high school. The goal of the VAMOS Program is to close this service gap, supporting adults with developmental disabilities and their families as they transition from high school into the workforce. We look forward to developing our AmeriCorps program with the support of the NMCCV.
In July 2017, Mandy’s Farm was awarded a grant in the amount of $17,000 from the Community Fund through United Way to pilot the VAMOS (Vocational Access and Meaningful Opportunities for Success) Program. This program will allow Mandy’s Farm to meet the needs of adults with disabilities in our community who have graduated high school, but are still on the waiting list for Medicaid Waiver services.

It was so exciting to have young community members visit the farm and learn about the programs there.
