Little Feet, Big Impact. 

For over 22 years, our Hippotherapy services have provided life-changing results for children with disabilities and/or unique needs in our community. As we see an increased need for these services, our need for more open, uninterrupted space to provide a better quality of care grows with it. 

Our new Community Engagement Center will help us do just that by providing additional therapy space for crucial big movement activities, room for group therapy and more camp programs, opportunites for families to connect with the community, and include a vector gait system - making Children's TherAplay the first pediatric facility in Inidana to have this system. Learn more about what this space can provide and how you can help below. 

While we seek to improve the therapy experience for kiddos and their families, we strive to learn from, engage, and connect with the members of our community as well. Altogether, the new Community Engagement Center will provide more treatment, more service options, and more opportunities for growth. With your help, we can work to meet the needs of our kiddos and their families. 

We're ready for the final phase. Will you join us?

  • The Vision

    The Vision

    With the addition of the Community Engagement Center, we will provide more treatments, more service options, and more space for growth and development. This includes: 

    • Additional gym space with high ceilings for therapy equipment, large open space for bike riding and obstacle courses, and an ADA-accessible ramp to the arena area. 
    • Space to host 75 to 100 people for conferences, workshops, and family-focused social events. 
    • On-site childcare room for community events. 
    •  Workshops and educational events with other disability service organizations to help inform families and the community.
    • A vector gait system - a body weight support harness system used during gait training and other forms of rehabilitation. This will be the first pediatric vector gait system in the state of Indiana.

    Community Room


    Our community space has played an important role in our ability to serve our community for over the past twenty years. In the new Community Engagement Center, we will be able to increase the size of events, workshops, conferences, and parties we can host, allowing us to bring more of the community in to see the Children's TherAplay mission in action.
