Kendleton Farms is a miracle. It's a home for survivors of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation located in Kendleton, TX. It is a journey of innovation which will result in a multifaceted social enterprise community. At Kendleton Farms, survivors will live, heal, work and re-enter society with work history, viable job skills, and start-up savings. Kendleton Farms also will house for-profit business ventures to provide skill training, jobs, and the dignity of marketable work experience, making it different from other aftercare programs. It was an act of faith on how the property was attained and the whole journey Kendleton Farms is embarking on. You can read the full story at https://www.kendletonfarms.com/our-story/.

I was honored to donate my time and gifts working on a few projects for Kendleton. One of these projects was there logo. Kendleton was very direct on what they wanted for there logo. They wanted a river because they have the San Bernard river running right behind there property, along with a depiction of farmland, and sun which resembles hope, growth and newness. They also wanted an enclosement so it could easily and affordably be a sticker. They wanted it to say "all things new" for a tagline because they are about restoring lives and giving them a fresh start.
