Gentle Barn


Ellie Lacks, Janice Murray, & Jay Weiner

On January 17, 2011, KHTS was pleased to welcome back Ellie Lacks and Jay Weiner from the Gentle Barn to the KHTS Community Resource Station. We featured this organization on the KHTS Non-Profit Spotlight – hosted by Janice Murray . The KHTS Non-Profit Spotlight airs Mondays at 10am on AM-1220 KHTS and is sponsored by Castiac Lake Water Agency.

The Gentle Barn is a non profit 501(c)(3) corporation. It was founded in 1999 by Ellie R. Lacks and is now run by Ellie and her partner Jay Weiner. Ellie and Jay had similar childhoods where they both felt alone, unseen and misunderstood. For both of them it was from animals that they received their attention, friendship, and unconditional love. Having been saved by animals it was their dream to have a place that allows children to be supported and healed by animals like they had been. Ellie and Jay live on the property with their three children. Ellie and Jay see their 120 rescued farm animals as teachers, healers, friends and hero’s. Every animal at their place has been rescued from horrible abuse, neglect, and loneliness, and yet they have all survived using forgiveness, trust, love, and courage. These are the qualities that Ellie and Jay strive for on a daily basis, and that they teach the children that visit The Gentle Barn.

In these times of gangs, drugs, crime, violence and war, it is essential to make efforts to ensure a more peaceful future for children.They  feel it is imperative that they teach the children kindness and compassion, and empathy for all living beings. When a child meets another, looking different than themselves, with perhaps a different religion, race, sex, or language, if that child knows that we are all the same on the inside, then perhaps that child will accept the other and we will be closer to having peace on earth.

At The Gentle Barn, they work hard every day to achieve this goal. They work with children from the inner city, group homes, mental health care facilities, foster homes, and schools to teach them that even though we are all different on the outside, on the inside we are all the same and are deserving of the same rights, respects, and freedom.

All of the animals at Gentle Barn have been rescued. They are the ambassadors – each with its own unique story and history.
