Everyone who visits Quantum Leap Farm falls in love with this amazing nonprofit organization.
As a volunteer, I've had the opportunity to meet hundreds of clients who have expressed how they and their families have benefited from the therapeutic sessions at the farm. The founder, staff, board members, volunteers and therapy animals, all work together, putting their heart and soul into creating a healing environment for pediatric cancer patients, military veterans, and individuals with a wide-variety of physical and mental impairments.
Truly a gift to the Tampa Bay area that is helping young and old alike.
Quantum Leap Farm, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization founded in 2000, is nationally recognized equestrian program serving injured and disabled civilian adults and children, military service members and their families. We are able to provide these services only through the generous support of our local community and individuals like you.
Since 2003 I have been volunteering each week with Quantum Leap Farm. Over the years I have witnessed first hand the amazing relationships that are made between horse and client and also QLF staff members/volunteers and our clients. So many times the "I can't" becomes "Look what I did".
I especially enjoying working with the war veterans that come from our local V.A. Hospital in Tampa. The wounds of war are often invisible, and I think that the bonding with horses helps to facilitate the healing process of any depression, anxiety or PTSD injuries. The Family fun days put on for military families are always a good time. What a nice way to say thank you for serving our country.
Quantum Leap Farm provides equine physical therapy to the disabled both physically and emotionally. Quantum Leap is among only a handful of facilities that provides equine physical therapy and emotional therapy via horses to our Veterans. The facility is clean, calming and serene. It promotes a feeling of calmness and joy in watching the farm animals and wildlife.
