If our children are our heart, then our staff are our muscles. Nothing would ever get done on the Mission if it wasn’t for our team of caring individuals who work tirelessly to create the safe, nurturing environment that exists at Strong Farm. Most of our staff live on site in accommodations that we provide. Their homes are very modest. Generally they have very little in the way of possessions or assets and often their homes are in need of repairs. But in all cases, this is a labor of love, with many staff members knowing first hand just how powerful a loving Mission childhood can be.
Our children refer to our staff members as Auntie and Uncle; this is an important part of building our family atmosphere. Our youngest members of staff are around twenty years old and our oldest is over eighty! Each day our staff members meet together for afternoon and morning tea, and every Tuesday afternoon for a staff meeting to discuss the needs and works of the Mission together.
