Mission Statement

Marley’s Mission is a non-profit organization that provides equine-based therapy free of charge to children, and their families, who have experienced trauma. Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) has shown evidenced-based efficacy in patients who have experience abuse and now suffer with depression, anxiety and other symptoms as a result of abuse. Research and observational findings have shown EAP yields a variety of psychotherapeutic benefits such as: confidence; self-efficacy; self-concept; communication; anxiety reduction, and most importantly... trust.

Description

Marley's Mission houses several horses on a large piece of property in Newton Township, outside of Scranton, PA. Trauma specialists and counselors work alongside equine specialists utilizing groundwork with horses in conjunction with a specialized treatment plan for clients who have experienced trauma.

Marley's Mission hosts several fundraising and awareness events throughout the year in order to provide their services free of charge.
