The Gentle Barn, home to 170 rescued animals, rehabilitates and gives sanctuary to animals who were severely abused and mistreated. The Gentle Barn is also host to abused children, kids recovering from substance abuse, kids on probation, foster kids, and children and adults with mental, emotional, and physical challenges. Through the interaction with animals, the kids learn forgiveness, courage, strength, leadership skills, trust, empathy, and kindness.
