Featured Partners

We are proud of our partnership with CYN out of Grayslake which brings their credentialed mental health staff to the farm for equine-assisted programming for their Mentoring Program and their Growing Resilient Teens program.  These partnered programs allow at-risk youth from all over Lake County to come to the farm, learn to groom, tack, and ride horses, and other animal care and gardening activities while engaging in group mental health conversations with CYN staff.  The participants love coming to the farm and gain so much from our integrated approach to supporting their mental and emotional health.
