"The Farm project seeks to help these children cope with the trauma of a bad situation by allowing them a safe place to work through their problems. There will be a cabin on site for meetings in a neutral place with social workers, foster parents and even birth parents looking to regain custody. Organizers even hope to allow children to visit with their pets that were taken away.
The Farm project, she (Margaret Malone) explained, is based on the premise that children will relate to an animal when they can no longer relate to humans.
The details of The Farm are still being sorted out, she said, but the land has already been purchased through donations from many people and businesses, amounting to $165,000. The group will need even more money to build the barn, the cabin and the house, which will be on the 10-acre plot of land along Ind. 9, south of C.R. 200 North, across the street and slightly north of LaGrange Country Dodge.
Malone hopes there will also be a house on the property with a foster family living there full time to help care for the small animals, which could include goats, chickens, sheep, dogs and cats.
