Project Horseshoe Farm

Project Horseshoe Farm is a nonprofit organization that offers an innovative network of programs to support and improve the health and quality of life of adults and children in the Greensboro community. Those programs include:

  • Health partners: Our Health Partners program pairs Horseshoe Farm Fellows with adults in our community to provide outreach, support, delivered meals, transportation, and help navigating the complex healthcare system. The program reaches more than 50 seniors and other vulnerable adults in our community. 
  • Housing: HSF runs two housing programs for women where Fellows and other community volunteers provide companionship and support to help residents maintain their independence and pursue their health and other goals.
  • Youth Program: We partner with local schools to expand opportunities for children through a 21st Century award-winning K-12 tutoring, mentoring, and enrichment program after school.
  • Adult Day Program: Our Main Street Community Center is a welcoming space that integrates health, wellness, and social programs with primary care, nursing, and mental health clinics for adults in our community. 

Horseshoe Farm offers an intensive, paid community-based gap year service and leadership development Fellowship. It is geared to top recent college graduates from around the nation interested in community health and education, non-profit and organizational management, social entrepreneurship, and community service leadership. The competitive Fellowship is a unique opportunity for high levels of responsibility and mentored hands on learning in a rapidly growing community based non-profit organization.  Its aim is preparing citizen service leaders needed for tomorrow's communities. Horseshoe Farm also provides internships for undergraduate students exploring careers in medicine and other human services for a shorter duration but with similar exposure to programs and leadership development.
