Work at Storybook Farm
Founded in 2002, Storybook Farm is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose primary mission is to change childhoods. Through relationships with animals, nature, mentors, and peers, we help children from broken or abusive homes, or those who have suffered some type of adversity or trauma. Many kids struggle with emotional, behavioral, or developmental challenges, so we aim to help them reclaim the wonder, fun, and joy of childhood.
We’re the only organization in a 200-mile region providing this type of multi-approach, high-impact, life-altering programming for children. In fact, without Storybook, many of the children who attend our programs, would experience no other type of childhood than one riddled with pain, fear, and loneliness.
Storybook Farm operates year-round hosting six programs for more than 150 children weekly. Annually, we serve more than 3,000 children and their families from eight neighboring counties in Alabama and Georgia. We currently have three two full-time staff, five part-time staff, 12 board members, 250 weekly volunteers, over 1,500 donors, thousands of volunteer alumni, and operate with a $850,000 budget.
