Children's Defense Fund Alex Haley Farm

The Children’s Defense Fund Leave No Child Behind® mission is to ensure every child a Healthy Start, a Head Start, a Fair Start, a Safe Start and a Moral Start in life and successful passage to adulthood with the help of caring families and communities. CDF provides a strong, effective and independent voice for all the children of America who cannot vote, lobby or speak for themselves.
We pay particular attention to the needs of poor and minority children and those with disabilities.
CDF educates the nation about the needs of children and encourages preventive investments before they get sick, drop out of school, get into trouble, or suffer family breakdown. CDF began in 1973
and is a private, nonprofit organization supported by foundation and corporate grants and individual donations. We have never taken government funds.

The Children’s Defense Fund purchased this farm from the estate of the late Alexander Murray Palmer Haley in 1994 as a community for character and servant-leadership development, community building, intergenerational mentoring, and interracial and interdisciplinary communication. Haley Farm is a smoke-free, drug- and alcohol-free, violence-free, hate-free, loving environment.
