Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Madison House Autism Foundation is dedicated to creating awareness of the lifespan challenges autistic adults and their families face; and to finding, developing, and promoting the solutions that allow adults with autism to make choices, live as independently as possible, hold jobs, feel connected to their communities and become participating members of our society.
Madison House operates an Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies Program located in Dickerson, Maryland called Madison Fields. At Madison Fields, wellness, employment, community engagement, and housing are foundational of our mission in providing opportunities to individuals with autism and related disabilities, veterans, their families, and the community-at-large.
We accomplish this by creating agricultural programs and enterprises and by partnering with passionate individuals, organizations, educational entities, and governments to bring about effective solutions that reshape possibilities for people of all abilities.
