History/Mission

 

Nature’s Edge Therapy Center, Inc. was founded in June 2001, with the goal of providing more effective, innovative therapeutic treatment for patients with special needs.

Initially the center provided only speech and language therapy three days a week.  In the spring of 2002, Nature’s Edge became a full-time rehabilitation center, operating five days a week and expanding its services to include physical and occupational therapy.

Nature’s Edge was incorporated on July 23, 2001, and received a determination of its 501(c)(3) status from the IRS on December 10, 2001.  We receive no funding from the state or federal government.  Our work is made possible solely through donations, program-related and fundraising events, and grants.

Our mission is to provide the highest quality of intensive rehabilitation by qualified and licensed staff to our patients and their families in a safe, natural and motivational setting, promoting the human-animal bond.  Our ultimate goal is to facilitate our patients’ independence and integration into family, school, and society.
