Good Shepherd Therapeutic Center

           
                                                                                      
 
This 303-acre farm serves as a haven to many who have come here. Good Shepherd provides residential care to troubled adolescent boys through a unique farm-based treatment program. These boys are given a chance to start a new life built on the foundation of Jesus Christ. Each boy is cared for physically, emotionally and spiritually. We provide counseling, social services, and address their academic needs. Each resident is responsible for helping on the farm by caring for a horse. Their day starts off by feeding and caring for "their" horse. Quite often, these boys who have difficulty connecting with another person develop a bond with the horse which is often their first step to healing.

 

In addition to serving our residents, our horses are also used in a unique equestrian treatment programming for people with disabilities. A program that is open to the public, people with disabilities are able to participate in therapeutic riding services. We have clients - ranging from young people to seniors  - who have a wide-range of disabilities. People with spinal injuries to people with Down's Syndrome take advantage of this unique therapy. Using specialized riding equipment and trained staff, our clients have the opportunity to work muscles that they normally couldn't by riding a horse. It helps the clients both physically and emotionally.
