PEOPLE + FARMING + COMMUNITY

Uncertainty is something we all face at one time or another. Now more than ever uncertainty is at an all-time high.

Highland Heights Foundation is a non-profit farm and social enterprise in Frankfort, Indiana. We combat uncertainty by providing jobs and food to people in our community; ensuring everyone has access to a good job and good food.. We use agriculture as a vehicle for workforce development and food access in our community.

Kay is a single mom, living in transitional housing and unable to find a job that would allow her the flexibility to attend her recovery classes and still have time to see her young daughter. Most of the available shifts are 12 hours long, or overnight shifts and there is no childcare available overnight.

Sarah has a history of mental illness due to trauma in her early childhood. Now in early recovery, a mom herself, she struggles to maintain employment due to lengthy weekly therapeutic sessions. With limited SSID benefits each month, she no longer qualifies for food assistance and relies heavily on food banks, but she is not able to get fresh produce at any of the local food banks. Her family primarily eats pre-packaged pasta and noodles and her health suffers from the lack of fresh food.

Jared is a single parent, attending classes and working full time. His children are in foster care, and due to mandatory court appearances during working hours he lost his job. He was unable to pay his rent and was evicted. Now homeless and jobless, he struggles to see his children on a regular basis due to job interviews and a search for appropriate housing.
