Selah House is now open.

The Selah Family House and Carefarm is the first green carefarm in the U.S. to serve traumatized and bereaved families from all over the world. It’s a place where grief is honored and held, and where people are safe to feel, to remember, and to connect with a community. All of the animals at the carefarm are loved and protected and have been rescued from abuse and trauma. The animal-human connection through a shared sense of trauma and loss is powerful. Please watch our video to learn more.

Bereaved parents talk openly about losing their children and how they found support, and eventually meaning, within the MISS Foundation community after suffering the most unimaginable and traumatic loss. Many of our bereaved parents become MISS volunteers and help others who tragically now walk a similar path.

A chance encounter with a severely abused, starving horse on a popular hiking trail led to his rescue by Dr. Cacciatore. The beautiful horse, now named Chemakoh, became the inspiration for the Selah Carefarm and the rescues of more than 40 more tortured animals. The carefarm rescue animals now lead a comfortable life, surrounded by constant love and attention, on 10 beautiful acres of farmland near Sedona AZ.

A sanctuary for grieving families where loss is met with compassion and grief is acknowledged as love. The Selah Family House and Carefarm is the first carefarm in the world specializing in serving the traumatically bereaved. Carefarms began more than 20 years ago in the Netherlands as a humanistic therapy where farm life — working the land, caring for animals — is the basis for healing.
