This branch connects all talents and resources to work in unit with other organizations and philanthropists.
Amanda Schumacher hosted her first meeting for the Women’s Faith Forum at her home on November 13, 2009.
The small luncheon gathered over 25 women to help empower each other to be part of the Tree of Life Foundation International with various missions and fundraisers, bringing the women together to better serve each other and those in need.
The Tree of Life Foundation International hosted two Fundraisers at the Palm Beach Yacht Club and Fisher Island Resort in Miami Beach, aboard Family Affair Yacht, hosted by Chuck and Amanda Schumacher.
Proceeds helped organizations that make a difference in the lives of people struggling to make a better life for themselves and their families. The philanthropy Branch of the Tree of Life Foundation provides resources and connections to benefit those in need.
Faith Farm Ministries located in Boynton Beach, Florida was the recipient for both events. Faith Farm Ministries began in 1951 as a rescue mission where homeless and addicted men in the streets of Ft. Lauderdale could find a safe and loving place with “3 hots and a cot”.
Since then, Faith Farm has evolved into a free, faith-based, long term, residential recovery program with 445 beds for men and women who struggle with alcohol and/or drug addiction. There are 3 campuses in south Florida with over 1,650 acres. Although each campus has a church, a thrift store, live-on staff of pastors, teachers and counselors, common curriculum and work training programs, the similarities stop there. Each campus is quite unique and features its own micro-enterprise initiatives.
