My daughter has Austism. I have taken my daughter Nature,s Edge for the last year or so. I love the staff and the philosopy they have. They are professional and very caring. They will find what works for the client. Not afraid to think outside of the box. Very positive and determined to help each and every client and meet them where they are at.

This summer was the first year I came to volunteer here and I have to say, it was one of the best decisions I have made. Everyone at Nature's Edge is so wonderful! They always let you know how grateful they are for everyone's hard work. I am super glad I came to Nature's Edge and I will definitely be coming back!

As a professional, I have referred several children with severe needs to Nature's Edge Therapy Center. I am so amazed by the impact their unique services have on children who have struggled to respond to more traditional therapies. The staff and volunteers are very friendly and welcoming. They do a great job of making children and families comfortable and relaxed at their facility. I highly recommend Nature's Edge to others!

My 4 year old daughter has a sensory processing disorder that affects her ADLs. She will be receiving Hippo Therapy as well as Speech Therapy at Nature's Edge. We have had the evaluations and the information we have learned has been so enlightening. I cannot wait to see how this therapy helps my little girl as she prepares to go to Pre-K. Everyone that we have talked to at Nature's Edge has been so caring and really made us feel like family, not a patient. The volunteers that I have seen working with the animals are sincere, genuine and having nothing but love for what they are doing.

My son is going to Natures Edge for speech therapy and we are so glad we found such a wonderful organization. He is progressing and reaching all his goals. I am so thankful for all the wonderful people who work and volunteer at Natures Edge. We are also thankful for all the animals and especially the horses, who with Hippotherapy, have also helped my son with his speech.

Our daughter received speech therapy at Nature's Edge Therapy Center the past 6 months. We are thrilled with her progress! We thoroughly enjoyed working with Becky Payne and the entire staff. We loved all the therapy animals and the beautiful setting. I believe our daughter responded much better to a non-clinical environment and felt more relaxed, thus could focus on the task at hand. We had a very positive experience and would recommend Nature's Edge to anyone!

What a great experience it was at Nature's Edge! The combination of the staff working one on one with our son (diagnosed with selective mutism) and the use of nature / animals for therapy is amazing! Thank you for giving us the opportunity .

Nature's Edge has the right combination of caring staff, enthusiastic volunteers, logistically minded Board of Directors, able administration and a grateful clientele to make it the top non-profit in our area. As a retired school superintendent who works with local service organizations I have knowledge of what is happening in our local non-profit sphere; Nature's Edge provides quality services to those who otherwise would be not be served in this niche.
