The Center For Equine Assisted Wellness offers a comprehensive program that serves children and adults with physical, emotional, cognitive, developmental, intellectual and socio-economic special needs. We specialize in the unique needs of Veterans, those in recovery from addictions, trauma or life altering circumstances, and women and children who are rebuilding their lives after domestic abuse or violence. Our programming is primarily ground work based, although mounted work, riding, and Equicizer sessions may be incorporated into to the clients plan of progress if it will compliment their goals.
We understand the fears and challenges our clients face, they have a new start...but how do they make it work when they are on their own? That's what where we come in. Our programs include everything our clients need to assist them in their path toward empowered independence. This includes valuable life skills such as effective communication, goal setting, responsible functioning including budgeting, planning, personal care, even healthy life choices regarding exercise and nutrition, such a meal planning, cooking skills and more.
Our services are offered in private and group sessions, and are offered at no cost to our clients. Each person who visits our farm will have be allowed to create their path toward wellness and wholeness without the added stress of financial concern. This is made possible through the clients reciprocal participation in volunteer efforts, and outreach, and the generous support of private donors, grants, and community based fundraising events.
Because our approach is so personalized, we serve a limited number of clients each year. We offer our programming from April through November, with December, January, February and March off. This gives our team of therapy horses, and our volunteer staff, ample time to rest, recharge, and restore their own personal wholeness after delivering eight months of emotionally, physically and spiritually intensive sessions. During this time, they also attend training and professional development opportunities, and create and pilot new programming options.
