Join us for the December Monthly Member Gathering as Jennyrae Brongo, the Executive Director and Founder at Homesteads for Hope, will be presenting on starting a Care Farm, inclusivity, and successful, innovative fundraising efforts!

Jennyrae Brongo considers herself a Dream Builder – As a young entrepreneur, sister to autism, woman in construction and founder of Homesteads for Hope Community Farm, she believes all her life’s work is for one common mission – to build sustainable community. Her vision came to life in the form of a collaborative construction community, a community farm and sustainable housing for young adults with autism. Jennyrae Brongo is a Rochester, New York native and the owner of Brongo Contracting & Supply. She is also the founder of Homesteads for Hope, a nonprofit organization founded in May of 2013. Homesteads for Hope is dedicated to the support of young adults with autism and their families, offering a welcoming community environment. In 2016, Homesteads for Hope purchased a fifty-five-acre historic farm in Ogden, New York, which has since transformed into the community’s permanent home. Jennyrae continues to support and improve this venture, positively impacting the lives of countless young adults with autism and their families.
