Executive Director & Founder
In 2015, Veteran and founder Sara Hodgkiss saw an opportunity to help her fellow Veterans. An Afghanistan vet herself, she witnessed soldiers in her unit struggling with PTSD after deployment. Nestled in the heart of Amish country, Pennsylvania was a hidden gem from her childhood that would become a sanctuary and therapeutic facility for countless veterans and community members.
Using her experience as a human resource specialist in the Army, Sara founded a nonprofit that could bring the healing aspects of rescue farming to those in need. In 2017, Woerth it Hollow officially became a certified 501c3 that opened its doors to rescue animals and their human counterparts! But there is still a lot of renovations and upgrades we require, and this farm needs your help! Donate today and help us with this “Woerthy” cause, because every little effort is woerth it. As a startup, we rely on community funding and donations to operate.
