Our mission is to help children heal who have experienced trauma and are now living in the state's foster care system . We at Sunshine Farm have created a new emotional world by healing through compassion and happiness. The farm offers the experience for children to feel welcomed into a world where people and animals cherish them, protect them, meet their needs, make them feel at home and give them a sense of belonging. When the children work side by side with the animals they start to heal the feelings of fear, abandonment, helplessness, and isolation. All of our programs aid in helping a child to feel an uplifting in their self worth. The children form an attachment to the horses and other small animals. Their imaginations and creativity run wild at the farm and their spirits are free.
