People Helping Animals. Animals Helping People.
“Believe in their intelligence, presume competence and most of all don’t sideline them. Make sure they live a life with dignity, having a purpose in life.” ~ Tracy Thresher
Our Mission: To offer an opportunity for people and animals to learn, grow and heal together in nature.
Our career development program is focused on increasing successful employment for folks experiencing disability or traumatic brain injury. And for people who just want to spend time on the farm caring for animals or tending the garden, we have a place just for you.
We firmly hold that anyone, regardless of ability or disability, should be able to experience the life they choose for themselves. We believe that interacting with nature and animals can enhance our well-being and quality of life.
Our clients learn about nature and animals through study and hands-on experience. They learn how to build healthy relationships based on trust and respect. Clients learn how to care for themselves by first caring for something other than themselves and they explore their potential through physical work, cognitive endeavors and emotional connections.
