At Agape Acres our mission is to share the unconditional love (Agape love) of Christ with children in foster care, children with disabilities (whether physical or emotional) or any child or adult who can benefit from EAAT (Equice Assisted Activities and Therapy)
We believe in the healing power of horses and have seen the positive affect that horses have on children. The founders of Agape Acres, Brian and Janie Nelson have seen the benefits of EAAT first hand in their adopted sons, Kevin and Charlie. Kevin spent 6 years in foster care and was moved 12 times in those 6 years. Charlie came from being in group homes while in foster care. Working with the horses has helped them learn responsibility, accountabiltiy, dependability, trust and riding has helped with cognitive developement for Kevin.
We founded Agape Acres to help other children and share the benefits of EAAT with those who are in need.
