Michael lives at New Haven Farm Home’s semi-rural property at Freemans Reach.

He has a real interest in attending and being involved in meetings about our community. He is particularly interested in learning more about the Mayor of Hawkesbury.

Michael recently attended the AGM for Nepean Community College, where he is completing his reading and writing course. Michael had the opportunity to speak at this meeting and did a fantastic job!

Every Friday, Michael goes to Zumba at the Active8 Gym in Richmond. He loves going to zumba, dancing and exercising to some of his favourite music; having fun and looking after his heath and fitness at the same time.

Michael loves being out in the community; socialising; going to clubs; out for a cappuccino and participating in every day activities such as doing the grocery shopping; going to his reading and writing class; going out and chatting with his friends.

Michael is currently working towards his goal of participating in more activities that build his social skills and enable him to be included in mainstream society.


While New Haven Farm Home has been successfully supporting individuals living with a disability for over 57 years, there is an increasing need for us to expand our service availability to meet the growing demand in our community.

We are very excited to be able to share with you the news that New Haven Farm Home is taking the steps to address this demand by growing our supported accommodation and lifestyle support services, opening a new and additional site in Richmond.

Once fully operational, this site of 3 new villas, will provide support for an additional 12 individuals from our community a great step towards addressing the service shortage impacting people in our local area.

A sense of belonging to a greater community improves ones motivation, health and happiness it is a human need, just like the need for food and shelter, so we are very pleased to be able to increase our role in creating a positive change for the people in our community living with a disability.
