Healing, Order, Peace, and Encouragement.

  • Lesson Promoting Healing

  • Farm Activity which fosters Ownership and Confidence 

  • Family Connection & Goal Meeting at close of each Session


Every family is matched with the following:

  • Child Advocate 

  • Animal Friend

This animal-assisted therapy encourages deeper

relationships resulting in expediting the healing process.

WHAT OUR KIDS SAY

Girl, age 11

Going to the farm makes me feel happy because of all the nature that surrounds me.  I like walking the alpacas. I like holding the kittens.  I like crawling up on the haystack.  I like helping to do the farm chores. 

I liked feeding the chickens and gathering eggs. 

I walked with the white goat.  I like the kitties the best.  I held them and they were soft. 

I enjoyed brushing and talking to the horses.  I liked riding the horse.  I liked walking the alpacas even though they were stubborn at times! 

There was something magical about the farm!
