Supporting the development of Lifeskills Programs 

Proceeds from Activiites at Firefly Creek Ranch Farm to Table Family Meals and Gathering & Retreat Center go to help fund programs that teach Life Skills to women who are changing their lives after Human Trafficking or Sexual Trauma.  We are helping women to find new confidence in themselves and helping them to learn to trust and love again.
