Mission Statement

To share unconditional love (Agape love) by providing EAAT (Equine Assisted Activities and Therapy) and EAL (Equine Assisted Learning) to children with special needs.

Description

Agape Acres is a family non-profit organization. We are a member center of PATH International and thus adhere to the safety and operating standards set forth by PATH International. We founded Agape Acres after adopting our two teenage boys (one in 2013 and one in 2014). We have seen the benefit first hand of equine therapy with our sons. We live on 15 acres (5 are dedicated to Agape Acres) and have experienced personally the mental, emotional and physical benefits that our sons have gained through working with horses. Horses (and all animals) provide us with unconditional love, something we all want and need. Working with horses provides a sense of accomplishment through responsibility, dedication, knowledge and skills gained. Riding provides physical and emotional well-being through enhanced balance and improved cognitive development. We founded Agape Acres to share our experience with others who may benefit."
