FACES of Zachariah's Acres

Our guests are the co-authors of Zachariah’s Acres. Our service model encourages individuals with special needs to gain self-confidence, which enables them to be more productive in their households, in their schools, and in their community.  We want to make an eternal difference in the lives of our guests, so we provide them with experiences that help them grow and live a life of meaning and purpose.
