True Friends is providing limited services.

As of today, True Friends is serving limited individuals in Respite and Horse Therapy, as well as family cabin rentals. We are currently registering individuals for Weekend Respite and Summer Camp in 2021. Individuals interested in any services can call 952.852.0101 or email at

True Friends’ mission is to provide life-changing experiences and adventures for all abilities. Today, our mission takes on another meaning as we are all having a collective life-changing experience, enduring the COVID-19 pandemic.

For over 60 years our Minnesota locations and programs have welcomed thousands of individuals, families, teammates, friends, and colleagues, of all abilities, as they step out of their day-to-day routines to reconnect, relax, and refresh their mind, body, and soul.

Today, we are faced with a new reality of providing the same great programs and services, all while following the directives given by our local, state, and national agencies. While we miss seeing our participants and their families, we are encouraged by the perseverance of our staff, donors, and local community to support one another.

Now, we look to you.

Here is how you can support True Friends during this crisis:

Donate. We need your financial support now more than ever. Nearly all our programs and services are currently suspended, a large portion of our staff have been furloughed, and our locations are closed. We need your financial support to be able to relaunch our services the moment restrictions have been lifted.

Engage on social media @TrueFriendsCan. Share our posts with your personal and professional circles.

Join Us. As soon as it is safe to do so, True Friends will fully reopen. We hope that you will continue to support our mission and join us.
