At The H.E.A.R.T. Center, we strive to enhance the quality of life of each person served by providing individualized recreational therapy services that bridge the gap between clinical services and a meaningful life outside the home.
The H.E.A.R.T. Center was founded in 2014 with one horse, one recreational therapist and a whole lot of love to give. Our primary service has been Therapeutic Horseback Riding for kiddos with special needs but we have expanded into a one of a kind micro school for kids with special needs to utilize the horses as a catalyst to their learning. Our multi-sensory recreation approach to learning allows our clients a multitude of opportunities for growth and learning.
Through the work we do with our students and our families, our ultimate goal is to create a positive community where people feel valued regardless of their abilities, and they have a space where they feel at peace and can grow into the amazing humans they are. We aim to remain a smaller program to hold onto the integrity and value of truly individualized programming.
Currently we are welcoming volunteers to help us grow into all of the greatness that our new property has to offer. We have volunteer opportunities for working with the horses, working inside our classrooms with the students and assisting with property projects like gardening!
