For over 25 years, Thistle Farms has worked to build and maintain the trust of our stakeholders — our supporters, our staff, and the community we serve.
A Note from Becca & Tasha
We are simply overcome with both gratitude and hope as we reflect upon how our collective work has broken through the toughest places and blossomed like the resilient thistle over the past 25 years.
Together, we’ve bravely set aside expectations and redefined belonging that celebrates vulnerability and second chances.
As we look ahead, our compass is set on thriving. Together, we will continue to collaborate and create innovative solutions to expand our programs for survivors to receive individual, trauma-informed care.
We come together to rise in defiance and courage for survivors and we are forever grateful for your support in the journey ahead.
- Becca Stevens and Tasha Kennard
