Organization Details: 

Mandy’s Farm assists individuals with developmental disabilities in achieving their goals for living, learning, and working in the community.
Mandy’s Farm serves over 200 adults with developmental disabilities living in the Albuquerque metro area. 100% of those we serve are living below the federal poverty line. The services at Mandy’s Farm provide a lifeline to adults with developmental disabilities, allowing them to successfully participate in their community, obtain and retain employment, and reduce instances of abuse, neglect, and exploitation.

Mandy’s Farm has embraced a vision for the future focused on seven areas that directly impact quality of life for adults with disabilities: daily living, community access, economic opportunity, friends and relationships, safety and autonomy, civic engagement, and freedom from discrimination.
