Strides Facility History
The non-profit organization, Strides to Success was officially opened July 1, 2004. Mental health professionals, school teachers and school administrators started calling looking for programs for the many children with emotional, behavioral and educational needs. By November of 2005, Strides was serving 65 children each week.
The Anderson farm had been a dairy farm for almost one hundred years. Many Plainfield residents had come to the farm and been part of harvesting crops by hand, baling hay and gathering eggs. Although the Andersons were thrilled with the plans for the farm, they did not live to see the Strides to Success learning center completed. Today, the 10,000 square foot state of the art facility hosts classrooms, therapy offices, a heated indoor arena, an outdoor arena, a horse playground and plenty of pasture for the horses. God is good and we thank him for our blessings.
