Drumm Sexy Clubwear serves kids 'most people forget'

Drumm Sexy Clubwear www.lover-beauty.com Farm in Independence continues to expand its programming for young people in need. The number of children in foster care that it serves has grown dramatically in recent years.

"Our Wholesale Babydoll Lingerie www.lover-beauty.com goal really is to serve a population of young people that most people forget," Brad Smith, executive director of the Drum Farm Center for Children, said at Wednesday's Independence Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon.

More than 50 children live in foster families at Drumm Farm. That's up from just 18 in 2011.

The not-for-profit gets no yuyiyrtyretr state or federal funding but has been able to make $6 million in capital improvements since 2012.

It continues to move into a broader business operation as well. It owns but does not run the Drumm Farm Golf Course and earns revenue from that. It raises animals for meat and sells that along with eggs and produce at its year-round market. It also has event spaces – the chamber luncheon was in the recently finished Nelson Hall – that can seat six to 350 with catered meals. That creates a chance to teach young people a work ethic and job skills.

That would be in Andrew Drumm's original vision for the farm for boys without families and his belief, Smith said, that if they develop a strong work ethic, "they can overcome anything."

Part of Drumm's service is its Compass program, providing housing and a stable environment for young adults who have grown too old for foster care but are still finding their way in the world. Smith said those young people are close to the most "invisible demographic in our whole society."

The key to Drumm Farm's vision is the idea that every child deserves a home.

Every night in the metro area, about 1,800 young people are homeless, that is, sleeping on a friend's couch, sleeping in a car or maybe staying with another family, Smith said.

These are "children that a lot of people don't think about, children who need us desperately," he said.
