At Quest Farm, we believe that all individuals have a right to their own identity, experience a sense of self-worth, and become productive members of a community. The men and women of Quest Farm range in age from 18- 80 years old. Each individual lives in one of the three houses with support staff. We believe this loving atmosphere is one option to encourage individuals to strive to reach their full potential.
We raise several thousand bedding plants every year in four large greenhouses. We also raise asparagus in the spring along with tomatoes, peppers, and herbs. A wide variety of flowers are grown from begonias to zinnias. In the fall, about 1,500 mums are raised. Quest Farm is a busy and productive place.
Along with the many agricultural work activities, the individuals participate in bowling, swimming, track and field, trips to the library, fishing, vacations, church attendance, eating out, birthday parties, Special Olympics, and other social events. We believe it is important for each individual to be a part of their community.
Q: I thought Quest Farm was just a farm?
A: Outside of our 26-acre farm, we also provide various programs to help our clients lead fulfilling lives. While the farm has been our legacy, we have multiple programs that take place in the community and benefit more individuals who need assistance with daily living, employment support, and community involvement. These services are administered out of our Quest Connect location in downtown Georgetown
Q: How do I qualify and or apply for services provided by Quest?
A: Clients utilize the Michelle P. and Supports for Community Living Medicaid waivers that are available to qualifying individuals throughout Kentucky. These waiver programs provide for a number of services to individuals, at no cost to them or their loved ones.
Individuals who are residents of Kentucky, and have a diagnosed intellectual disability are eligible to apply for the Michelle P. and Supports for Community Living Medicaid Waivers. These waivers are administered through the Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. While there are currently waiting lists for each waiver, individuals are encouraged to begin the application process as some emergency allocation is available. Please see our Waiver Navigator page for more information on all of the waivers available.
Q: What is Quest Connect?
A: Quest Connect at The Buddy Williams Center is located at 100 Buddy Williams Place, in Georgetown. This location gives us additional space to better meet the needs of our individuals, but also allows us to remain an important part of the thriving downtown community.
Thanks to a generous donation by the family of Buddy Williams, one of our previous residents, we were able take this step out on faith and move forward with the purchase and renovation of this property. Naming the facility after Buddy Williams is a way to honor his memory as well as recognize the generosity of his family.
