Equine Therapy for Foster Children

$390 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 4 people in 40 months
YOUR FUNDS GO DIRECTLY TO SPONSORING A CHILD INTO THE EQUINE THERAPY PROGRAM. FUNDING IS NEEDED TO PROVIDE EQUIPMENT SUITED TO EACH RIDER, ENTRY FEES TO COMPETITION IF THE YOUTH SO DESIRES TO PURSUE, FOOD, CLOTHING AND ANY NEED OF THE YOUTH WHILE IN OUR CARE. SUPPLIES ARE ALSO NEEDED TO CARE FOR THE HORSES THAT PROVIDE A PEACE BEYOND THE CHARACTER OF ANY HUMAN BEING. TEACHING MATERIAL, INCLUDING BOOKS, JOURNALS, ETC. ARE ALSO PROVIDED TO EACH CHILD. NO FUNDING BENEFITS OUR VOLUNTEERS AND STAFF PERSONALLY, ON A FINANCIAL LEVEL.

Equine therapy creates a relationship between horse and child that teaches respect, leadership, communication, trust, confidence and a realization and awareness of self. Most times these traits cannot have opportunity to exist in the case of a child that has moved house to house with no real consistency in order, love and a trusting relationship with an adult. It has been found often that this type of trust cannot be reached through person to person interaction alone. We currently work with several local children's shelters providing not only therapy for emotional and psychological needs but can say the need for the healing, discipline and understanding of one's own emotional needs and how to cope with those is of utmost importance. Our volunteers are different in character and strengths and come together with a heart to serve the needs of the children we mentor. Your gift of any kind, goes to assist in teaching life skills that will affect the world to come.

Looking forward to having the kids out for our summer work program in June - The program acts as a regular summer job for teens close to aging out of the foster care system. They are at the ranch early in the morning, working a real job to teach values like leadership, communication, respect and responsibility. The ranch has successfully administered this program to both boys and girls in foster care for the past 4 years . The youth participates in the program by working at the ranch for 6 weeks and are paid for their time, helping them to transition into adulthood in many ways. The program has been extremely beneficial to the youth involved and until now we have had adequate funding to support the program. This year we have more kids than sponsors and it is our goal is to continue providing the work program to our youth. We also need a few more volunteers. If this speaks to your heart, please message us ASAP and we will let you know where you can be of help. Have a great day!
