Four Key Projects To Grow The Farm

Join us as we transform Midnight Farm into an accessible hub of laughter and fun for adults with I/DD in Kansas. Check back every Tuesday and Friday afternoon for updates!

Concrete Repair

Safety | Accessibility

As one of the most high-traffic areas on the property, this concrete is the bridge between our parking lot and the farm. For adults with I/DD who use walkers, canes, and wheelchairs, it’s important that this concrete is flat and smooth so they can participate in all the activities and events inside the lodge.

Trail Renovations

Health | Exercise

Large potholes, loose chunks of gravel, and uneven surfaces have made Midnight Farm’s half-mile nature trail hazardous and unusable — not only for walking, but vehicles as well. It’s easy for many of us to walk our dogs on the sidewalk, but in the city, many resident don’t have the same luxury. Read More.

Why Residents Thrive At Midnight Farm

Humans are naturally caring individuals, so it’s no surprise that adults with I/DD often receive lifelong support. Yet, many adults with I/DD desperately want to help and give back, but lack the opportunity. Midnight Farm gives adults with I/DD the chance to experience the joy of giving care by nurture plants and animals among other fun and relaxing games and activities

Grow the Farm 2022

Last year, the compassion of our donors made Midnight Farm a safer and kinder place. Take a look and stay up to date with the successes of last year’s fundraiser.

Melba Wright-McNichols Stage and Screen

Melba McNicolas’s contagious energy animated everyone around her. During her time at GoodLife, Melba organized countless plays and performances with our residents on her handmade stage. In honor of Melba’s incredible passion and fierce advocacy, the generosity of our donors allowed us to craft a new, wheelchair-accessible stage in her name, where her legacy lives on.
