About the Partnership
For the past five years, the FACE-IT Program has long enjoyed a strong working relationship with the Lincolnshire Garden Club. Together, a project known as the Victory Garden has come into existence. This creation represents for youths a personal “victory over” criminality, indifference, sloth, anger, deceit, intolerance, violence, hatred, destructiveness, abusiveness and divisiveness; and a celebration for each boy in a “victory for” love, beauty, honor, respect, charity, confidence, belief, penitence, responsibility and cooperation.
Members of the club visit with the residents on a weekly basis to continue the development of the garden. This activity is incorporated into the Science program and residents are given high school credits.
