Dawn Farm was founded in 1973 with the combined contributions of Gary Archie, Jim Balmer, Colleen “Beanie” McCarthy, and Jack Scholtus. Using the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous and some borrowed ideas from the Spera Foundation, a residential program in Quebec, they rented the Farm on Stony Creek Road.
