The Farm in Galong is a post-rehabilitation facility for women leaving drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

The organisation’s goal is to provide a ‘Therapeutic Community’ where residents are given vocational and training opportunities to prepare for independent living. The Farm itself spans several acres and is situated in a peaceful, rural setting, providing residents with a quiet and secluded environment to consolidate their recovery.


2019 Pitch

Funds raised: $30,000

Sister Kate Cleary from the Farm in Galong has been working with women experiencing drug and alcohol addiction for years. She established the Farm as a therapeutic community to address their holistic needs as well as their addictions. At TFN Live Canberra she was pitching for funding to hire an on-site counsellor to assist and train residents to work towards their own recovery, bringing together mothers, their children and extended family.
