Northway Farms is a non-profit community providing a sustainable solution to domestic poverty. Through farming enterprise, we offer employment, housing, and training to homeless women and their children living in the Brazos Valley.

Cultivating Community

Northway Farms provides affordable housing & restorative employment to women & children living in extreme poverty. As one of the only residential-employment programs in Texas, we offer training, health service, & relational support to women who struggle in poverty due to past neglect, abuse, addiction, or arrest. Our family approach promotes longterm change by empowering our neighbors into a lifestyle of serving the poor & hurting. Our farming enterprise supports economic growth in our city, & creates a holistic way to teach valuable life skills. Healthy food is a sustainable source of revenue for the wage of our farmers, provides healthy food to our neighbors, & empowers unity in our community.
