Facility Accessibility Project 2012-2013
In the fall of 2012, we were able to begin our Facility Accessibility Project. The project includes fencing our outdoor Challenge Course and construction of a 3.8 acre Sensory Integration Trail.
This sensory integrationtrail winds through our existing tree farm and, once completed, will include many native plants and shrubs which will add to the sensory experience. This trail is being designed to enhance sensory learning and will be especially therapeutic for clients with autism-spectrum, emotional and behavior disorders, and those with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
The power and majesty of the therapy horse on this trail system will allow children and adults with challenges to benefit from a quiet jaunt in the country. In addition, to providing an environment of hope and healing that is both safe and accepting.
This trail is sponsored by East Salem Rotary Club, Rotary Club of Salem, Ann and Bill Swindell's Charitable Trust and the Equity Group Foundation, David Roe and Tammy Ju and countless others who have donated their efforts to this project.
