What We Do

Agape Acres exists to serve vulnerable and special needs youth by pairing them with a trained mentor and a rescue horse to find hope, unconditional love, and encouragement.  Through equine (horse-assisted) activities, youth work on individual life skills (such as self-worth, emotional awareness, self-regulation, independence, healthy relationships, & responsibility).  Agape Acres is a safe place for struggling youth to find hope, love, and encouragement while working on skills and goals that will help them transition toward healthy adulthood.
