Mountain Creek Farms, Inc. concentrates on four major areas of development: residential, supported living, vocational services and specialized services. These areas are described below. Our work is guided by our mission and philosophy.
The residential program focuses on skills retention, development of skills of independent living, and integration in the greater community environment through activities such as volunteer opportunities, Special Olympics, shopping and outdoor activities to improve the mind and body including hiking, biking, camping and cross country skiing.

The program has a wood shop, weaving and fabric arts department, a horticulture department and several fields of produce, landscaping which work out in the community, kitchen and meal preparation programs, and an animal care program in the barn and pastures. There are several internships set up local businesses that provide real-life learning opportunities that often lead to employment.
