Mission Statement

The mission of The Barn at Spring Brook Farm is to enrich the lives of children with disabilities by providing animal-assisted activities for the purpose of promoting knowledge, confidence, self-esteem and physical well-being.

Description

The Barn at Spring Brook Farm is located in West Chester, Pennsylvania and was founded for the purpose of providing animal-assisted activities for children with disabilities. Assistance animals include miniature horses, donkeys, goats, sheep and a rabbit.

The Barn's programs serve children with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, Down syndrome, cancer, blindness and deafness, autism and other conditions that qualify as special needs. Children can participate in activities by visiting The Barn on a regular weekly basis, by accompanying a school field trip or participation in summer camp.

The Barn is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a,m. until 5:00 p.m. by appointment. Most volunteer opportunities are available during that time.
