Participants with special needs in the cognitive, physical, adaptive, communication and emotional/social domains will be provided with the means to achieve activities of functional daily living and restore quality of life through riding and non-riding equine facilitated activities. Full Circle will enhance community involvement and awareness through promoting volunteerism in its programs.Full Circle represents a collaboration of many talented and dedicated individuals brought together with decades of experience working with and for other organizations.   Recognizing that diversity is the key to sustainability, our programs are tailored to the special needs of specific populations.  We also capitalize on the expertise of other members of the special needs communities by working with organizations such as United Hospice of Rockland, The Alzheimer’s Association of Rockland, Jawonio,  ARC of Rockland, Milestones Integrated Services, and Journey’s Way Mental Health Counseling Services to better understand and develop new programs.
