Facility - Our Future
SOOFA Ranch occupies 75+ acres of lush land. This land is dedicated to the vision of being a catalyst for change. We seek to be an advocate for mental health initiatives. SOOFA Ranch is the first and only minority owned equine assisted activities facility serving at risk youth in the South Atlanta area, with culturally relevant programming. We offer immersion experiences to shift mental perspectives.
Immersion experiences include therapeutic trail rides, equine assisted therapy and equestrian lessons. In addition to equine assisted activities we have future plans to conduct the following immersion experiences:
Agriculture Entrepreneurship - We will leverage the cultivation of micro-greens to teach youth about agriculture, business, resilience and connect them to legal and sustainable income sources
Outdoor Education - Through our farm stay program we will immerse youth in restorative natural spaces and build connections with nature, while demonstrating environmental stewardship.
Tiny House Immersion Experiences - We seek to provide outlets for connections with nature. More opportunities for physical activity, improved mental health, and better social bonds are just three benefits to tiny house experiences. Various studies show that spending more time outdoors can significantly improve stress levels, inflammation, and even provide an immune system boost.
