Experience Learning Support with Animals
WE ARE CURRENTLY ON PROGRAM SABBATICAL ** BE SAFE **
ELSA is not just a charity, but a community. Help make the difference and spread the compassion for individuals with autism and other special challenges. Your donation to ELSA supports hands-on, ranch-based horse programs that empower youth and young adults challenged everyday with special needs. A 501(c)3 nonprofit since 2009.
Your donation also gives new spirit to rescued horses who were out of a job, neglected or overused. At ELSA we give them new hope and a job, as the centerpiece of our programs serving those with autism and other special needs.
An Equine ExperienceThe horse is a hub of interactions during ELSA's ranch programs. Using a hands-on, horse-based approach to learning, participants expand their personal boundaries and experience exhilaration and joy.
