Our nonprofit is working to transform a Winchester Repeating Arms WWII-era test firing range into a healing garden for anyone impacted by violence. Our programming focuses on violence prevention and healing for the community.

Funds raised from our cash bar, silent auction, and 50/50 raffle will support efforts to build the healing garden and support our year-round programming.

About Eli's Garden of Healing: Eli's Garden of Healing was established in 2022 in the aftermath of the shocking murder of 15-year-old Elijah Gomez, who was shot while walking home from Hamden High School on the Farmington Canal Trail. Eli’s Garden of Healing is dedicated to fostering community healing and violence prevention. We exist to serve survivors of violence & develop safer communities.
