Maple Seed Farms Open House

Maple Seed Farms will be hosting an open house for all interested participants and their families on Friday September 23rd from 1-6 p.m. and Saturday September 24th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

At Maple Seed Farms, participants with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy or other developmental or intellectual disabilities will be given the individualized attention needed to help promote the skills required for successful paid employment and day-to-day independent living through practical applications.

Maple Seed Farms, Inc. was founded by three mothers – Cindy Kacsor, Valerie McKain and Amy Doran – all of whom have children with special needs. These women saw the need in the Fort Wayne community for services, including Applied Behavior Analysis therapy, which entails systemically applying intervention based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behavior to a meaningful degree. The founders of Maple Seed Farms believe that their service offerings will help individuals, just like their own children, bridge the gap into adulthood.

Maple Seed Farms is a pending Medicaid waiver provider. For more information, contact Cindy Kacsor, Maple Seed Farms, at
