A Safe Place Where All Are Welcomed, Empowered, and Connected
The Vista Hermosa community was established in 1990 and is home to over 800 year-round and seasonal employees of FirstFruits Farms. Programs and activities are designed to nurture leadership development, spiritual well being and service to the common good. In every aspect of life, residents are encouraged to find their voice, build connections, and share their gifts and dreams with one another.
We are a trauma-informed community, recognizing that traumatic events experienced early in life (known as ACES, or Adverse Childhood Experiences) have an impact on health and social-emotional well-being throughout the lifespan. Our mission is to restore resilience through building positive social connections in community, and nurturing stronger relationships between parents, children, neighbors and friends.
