Meet Jake. 18 year old Jake loves horses, has brown hair, blue eyes and autism. But autism doesn’t define Jake, though it will be a continuing influence on his life and that of his family members.
For five years now, Jake has participated in Quantum Leap Farm’s Occupational Therapy Program. His mom Kimmie can’t stop talking about his progress. “Jake’s strength, balance and coordination have improved immensely,” says Kimmie. A former equestrian herself, she knows well the benefits of horsemanship, and indeed her own experiences influenced her decision to involve Jake here. Even better, Kimmie says, are the emotional and social benefits Jake receives. The confidence Jake is developing through learning to ride an 1800-pound horse spills over into his interactions with others; making eye contact, initiating conversations, and engaging with people far more often. Kimmie credits Quantum’s professional staff, its beautiful and gentle therapy horses, and its culture of acceptance and encouragement for much of Jake’s progress.
“We could never repay Quantum for all they’ve done for Jake,” says Kimmie. “We owe a debt of gratitude to those who support the Farm through their generous donations. You’ve made such a difference for us!”
At Quantum, we see so many people like Jake discover their abilities and gain the self-confidence they need to learn, grow, and achieve. We could not be prouder of Jake’s innumerable accomplishments, and those of his amazing peers. After all, that’s what this place is about – giving participants the opportunity and inspiration necessary to discover and explore their full potential.
Of course, none of this happens without you. Your support is an essential ingredient in our participants’ success. 90% of our income is dependent on the generosity of our donors. Please help us continue to provide these transformative and life-changing services to children like Jake with a generous contribution to our year-end campaign.
