Mandy’s Farm is a nonprofit organization that assists individuals with Developmental Disabilities to achieve goals by structuring a positive, purposeful and caring environment for living, learning, and working in the community.
Mandy's Farm provides Residential, Employment, and Day Services to adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities in the Albuquerque area. Mandy's Farm was developed and founded by David and Ruthie Robbins, the parents of a young woman named Mandy. Like many parents of individuals with Developmental Disabilities, Mandy's parents wanted to provide their daughter with unlimited opportunities for life-long learning. At Mandy's Farm, programs in gardening, swimming, Therapeutic Horsemanship, the visual arts, and service learning allow Mandy and other adults with disabilities to live enriched and fulfilling lives. Our programs offer access to all of our amenities spread across our two Day Services sites, located in the South Valley (Mandy's Farm) and Nob Hill (Appaloosa Art Space). Amenities include our fully-operational barn, therapeutic pool, visual arts center, gardens, and vermicomposting center.
In addition to workshops and daily activities that take place on site, our programs focus on offering daily outing and events through which clients are able to form meaningful relationships in the community. Mandy's Farm also strongly values the belief that "Everyone Can Work." We see our programs as an opportunity to identify individual's skills and interests in order to obtain integrated work in the community. All of our workshops and daily activities are designed to help pinpoint areas of strength as well as opportunities for growth.
