Chenoa Manor Youth Program Featured on CBS Read the Full Story
Chenoa Manor’s primary mission is three-fold:

  1. Offers lifetime sanctuary for farm animals and exotic animals from situations where they had no alternative placement;
  2. Leads youth gently back to themselves through programs that educate & promote nature connectedness; and
  3. Models and nurtures respect and compassion for the natural world and her inhabitants through workshops and events that engage the surrounding community & public at large.
That mission embodies a sense of unity and respect among the youth, the animals, and the surrounding environment. Including the trees, plants, bodies of water and the land itself.The importance of the youth component is to instill a sense of compassion and respect toward other individuals. This is achieved through positive interaction with animals and the environment.If a young person can develop a relationship with an animal resident based upon mutual trust, patience, and understanding, then those same qualities may be carried over to the teen’s relationships with other individuals.
