Our  Mission
Agape Acres exists to cherish and enrich the lives of vulnerable and special needs youth by pairing them with a trained mentor and a rescue horse to inspire hope, unconditional love, and encouragement.   

Through equine-assisted activities, guided by a trained mentor, youth work on life skills and goals to help them transition toward healthy adulthood.

Agape Acres was founded on faith and is rooted in Christian principles.  Accordingly, we seek to gorify God by serving youth and families of all faith backgrounds or no-faith backgrounds equally.

Our areas of focus:

Rescuing Horses


We believe that all of God's creatures, including horses, deserve a safe, healthy, loving environment.  That is why we dedicate our farm to helping horses in need.

Mentoring & Teaching


Agape Acres serves children and teens that are hurting or vulnerable (in foster care, adopted, have experienced trauma, or are struggling with depression and/or anxiety).  One consistent factor that can help these youth grow into healthy adults is spending time with a caring mentor.  A mentor can meet them where they are, encourage them on their journey to becoming their best, and help them realize they are a unique and important person created with a purpose!

Additionally, there are many special needs individuals in our community whose lives can be enriched by new experiences and learning new skills.

At Agape Acres, we are excited about offering programs to mentor and teach each of these unique and important groups of individuals.  Trained mentors and instructors offer encouragement while helping participants grow in mind, body, and spirit.

Inspiring Outreach


The benefits of animal therapy are vast and well known.  Our Mobile Mini 's program will allow us to travel with our miniature horses and reach diverse members of the community.  By going on the road with these small horses we will be able to inspire excitement, joy, wonder, and knowledge as we bring these small horses to individuals who otherwise may not be able to experience this sort of animal therapy.  Agape Acres is excited to share our miniature horses with people in nursing homes, hospice care facilities, hospitals, the Ronald McDonald House, Veteran's facilities, children's homes,  group homes, facilities for special needs individuals, as well as to children in special needs classrooms in schools.   

Agape Acres does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or sexual orientation in any of is programs or activities.
