WELCOME TO HORIZON FARM TRUST

Learn more about us…

Horizon Farm is a residential special needs home for intellectually impaired / disabled adults in KwaZulu-Natal. The home was born out of a dream in 1994 by a group of parents of mentally and physically disabled dependents who set out to provide a home-away-from-home for their lifetime needs and respite care. Horizon consists of a happy and safe outdoor environment and caters for special needs adults with typical  challenges relating to Downs Syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism and Williams.

Vetiver Grass is one of our sustainability projects. This eco-friendly grass is effective in soil-erosion prevention. We can cultivate it on floating rafts, which has the added advantage of water purification.

Horizon Farm Trust

Nowadays, people with intellectual disabilities live much longer than they did in the past, with the result that there is also an expanding population of elderly parents who are continuing to care for a son or daughter well into old age. Horizon Farm was originally started so that there was a nurturing, safe place for parents to send their children, where they would be adequately cared for physically, and given the love that they need.
If you would like to find out more about our farm and the facilities we have, please go to our website www.horizonfarmtrust.org.za

Horizon Farm Trust

It’s a tough job for many, but for some Caring for others is the most rewarding job. All our staff work with vulnerable individuals and help them live their lives to the full, as our residents rely on them for physical, and emotional care.
Our staff help the residents to wash and dress, eat and drink, accompanying them on outings, or simply lift them into a more comfortable position in bed.

We are very grateful to our dedicated team, who exercise great care, patience and share of themselves for the well-being of our residents
