A word from CEO Brad Barry
It has come to our attention that Evolvefest, a former renter of our Fellowship Farm facility, has recently published disturbing Facebook posts regarding their opinions on sexual orientation. We are both saddened and outraged that in 2015, there are still individuals and organizations that feel justified in making self-righteous comments that deliberately harm and hurt other people.
At Child Guidance, we will absolutely not tolerate, support, endorse, or align ourselves with any organization that fails to see the value in diversity and equality.
In fact, understanding, compassion, and appreciation of each other’s differences have been the cornerstone of our mission since inception. We have always striven to provide a safe, tolerant place for children, adolescents, teens, adults, and families to gain support, and we continue to offer services specifically designed for adolescents/teens who face sexual and non-sexual identity issues.
We are regretful that a renter of Fellowship Farm has demonstrated a philosophy that we find abhorrent, and apologize to anyone that has been hurt by their comments. Our relationship with Evolvefest has been terminated.
