Goal of Program
Emmaus Farm is a nonprofit retreat center where we host high school and college volunteers for a week of service in the community of rural Lewis County, Kentucky, Appalachian cultural immersion, and spiritual retreat with an emphasis on Catholic Social Teaching. At Emmaus Farm, we invite volunteers to join us in living the cornerstones of service, simplicity, community, and prayer.

With the supervision of the Director, Farm Managers serve as leaders of the retreat service weeks for short-term volunteers, work on Farm maintenance, and minister to the Lewis County community through home visits and work with community partners. Farm Managers have flexibility to pursue a variety of focuses to support the mission of the Farm and to serve the local community. Sites include ministry of presence at a senior center, nursing home, and home visits; farm stewardship; minor home repair; and Appalachian immersion.
