Residential and Transitional Housing
Benevolence Farm maintains a housing program that provides women leaving prisons with a place to live, work, and reestablish themselves in North Carolina. Most residents live on the farm for six months to two years, post-release from a North Carolina prison. For women who cannot be accommodated on the farm property due to capacity limitations, staff work to find transitional housing in the community.
Woman of all conviction histories and incarceration lengths are welcome to apply to Benevolence Farm.

If you would like to directly support the material needs of the women on the farm, please consider donation of items on our Amazon wishlists here and here.
Benevolence Farm regularly consults with people being released from incarceration across North Carolina. We manage and update a community resource database to support formerly incarcerated people and their families as they return home. We value being a community partner and referral source to organizations around the state that serve and support formerly incarcerated communities.
