DESIRING MORE – TIME FOR A NEW FACILITY

Finding a successful treatment program for individuals with social, physical, emotional, or developmental challenges is rarely easy. So many fail to achieve positive outcomes within a more traditional therapy setting. Prescribed traditional treatment plans are often constrained by the number of visits allowed. Even if some improvement has been gained, a sudden discontinuation of therapy sessions might limit the long-term benefits of the treatment.

After failing to achieve positive outcomes with a prescribed plan, people often feel even more discouraged. They want so badly to experience an improved quality of life and not be treated as different.

A VISION THAT TAKES US BEYOND

Over the years, thousands of clients have experienced life changing improvement through the rehabilitation benefits and healing power of Forward Stride’s programs. The demand for our programs has escalated in recent years, leaving many people waitlisted. Not only are we growing, our current, rented location is being developed for a housing development. While this creates an urgent need to move, it also provides an opportunity to dream beyond our current reality to an even more transformational vision at our new facility. Over the years, thousands of clients have experienced life changing improvement through the rehabilitation benefits and healing power of Forward Stride’s programs.

Thanks to a generous donation of 20 acres located on SW Daniel Road in Beaverton (approximately 7 miles by car from our current location), we are able to launch a campaign to relocate and build a new state-of-the-art equestrian facility.

OUR VISION INCLUDES

  • More covered space to facilitate growth and healing between humans and horses
  • A large covered arena that will offer clients access to multiple therapeutic services in one central location
  • A small indoor arena with a temperature-controlled observation area, rehabilitation treatment area, and ADA accessible restroom facilities
  • A mechanical lift for those requiring more assistance for mounting an equine
  • An 18,000-square foot barn to quarantine and rehabilitate new and/or injured equines, conduct vet and farrier services
  • Improved administration offices
  • A caretaker’s facility
  • Pastures and outdoor sheds suitable for up to 40 horses
  • Convenient and well-lit parking areas with ADA parking

INVESTING IN THE VISION

We have launched a $4.1 million multi-phase capital campaign to relocate and transform Forward Stride into the best equine therapeutic center in the nation!
