Along with learning how to garden, compost and care for chickens and the land, LifeSupportM.org’s COMFY Garden youth volunteers discuss, explore, and practice a broader set of life skills in the areas of Money Management, Time Management, Leadership and Ethics, Relationships, Listening Without Fixing, Team Building, and Life Planning. Looking forward to seeing what grows from the seeds of life that are planted this spring!
Thank you team members, donors, family, and friends for sending us out
into the world to do good works – and congratulations, Brooke, on
accomplishing the first leg of your around the world adventure!
Life Support Intern and Administrative Apprentice, Brooke Griffin, is getting ready to embark on a life journey!
First stop is Tecate, Mexico, to build homes for families. Then she will embark on a seven month around the world trip from Mexico, to New Zealand, to Southeast Asia, to Europe, and then back home again. She is setting out on this journey to explore the way that people find happiness and life’s purpose while living and surviving in their every day lives. She will be writing, recording, and photographing her experiences to share as she goes along with hopes of writing a book about her experiences upon her return.
Brooke’s job at Life Support has been to care for the COMFY Garden, keep our offices in order, and work with our social enterprise clients doing bookkeeping, office administration, office organization, and personal and professional support. We at Life Support are so happy to have Brooke as a team member to help make good things happen in the world!

LifeSupportM.org is collecting donations to help two families in Merced County who have suffered severe losses in recent house fires. There are babies in need of diapers and clothing. There are mothers and fathers in need of household supplies and furniture. Anything you can spare in the way of funds and supplies would be greatly appreciated.
On December 2nd, in Merced County there were two house fires that had sad outcomes. Fire one was at a home of a family of five. The mom and one of the kids made it out and the dad went back into the home to try to save the other two kids. Unfortunately the dad and the two kids died in the fire leaving the mom and a 13 month old without a home or a family and they are in the burn center. Fire number two was at a home that was a complete loss. The family did get out ok but they did lose everything. If that is not bad enough they are expecting their first child, a girl, TODAY. These families need everything from clothes to furniture and more. Thank you in advance for your help.
LifeSupportM.org Team Members, Jeff, Leona, and Bailey were in Tijuana, Mexico, with a hard-working crew and the staff at Amor.org building a 22′x22′ home for the Bazurto-Martinez family.
It was a wonderful mission full of adventures, camaraderie, play, and a stow-a-way kitten (who eventually found a home with the local goat herder) – thank you everyone for your hands on work, your financial contributions, orphanage donations, and your loving support!

LifeSupportM.org paid a visit to the Ross Valley Seniors Club in Fairfax on Thursday, August 1, 2013. We talked about all our projects: Mexico Mission, Casa Hogar Sion Orphanage, COMFY Garden, and Radio – and we brought goodies to give away from the COMFY Garden, and the chickens and Barney dog got to join us to add to the fun!
