Ferncliff Manor

Tree of Life

Supporting Ferncliff Manor

Through our Tree of Life project, we are invested in the self-development and personal fulfillment of people with disabilities by providing them vocational training and exposure in a live music setting, while raising critical funds to build upon the program and broaden its reach.

Established in 2014, our Tree of Life project began as an annual live music event which supported the continued needs of our students, facility and curriculum. Thanks to overwhelming enthusiasm, today, the project is designated to fund vocational training and opportunities for those we serve in addition to the establishment of a live event venue which will exist to support housing and employment for adults with developmental disabilities here in Westchester County. The project is made possible by income raised from each Tree of Life benefit we produce.
