YOU CAN HELP BY DONATING TO HHH
News From The Barn
Hello all, As 2019 comes to a close, the staff and Board of Directors at Horses Healing Humans wants to take the time to thank all of the volunteers and friends in the community for all of their generous support that allows us to continue to serve the those in need of our services. We would also like to wish all of you a safe & happy holiday season and hope you are able to spend it with those you cherish.
Every day our volunteers are committed to assisting with feeding, farm clean-ups, facilities maintenance, and direct support of program activities, as well as many other tasks that ensure our operations run smoothly. On average, volunteers contribute 10 hours per day donating their time and talents. To help express our gratitude and show our appreciation, we will be having a Volunteer Appreciation Party on Saturday January 4th from 2-4 pm here at the farm. PizzaPlace Westerly has kindly offered to cater the event for us. Ugly sweaters and pajamas are encouraged and we look forward to seeing you.
In other news, we are continuing to develop programming with The Light House. Currently we are in the process of completing grant applications that will fund a program to support individuals transitioning from Light House programs to the workforce. This development will revolve around agriculture, hospitality, and food service, which will be centrally located here at the farm. Additionally, we currently have participants from the Light House here on a regular basis volunteering with us to support our mission. As we get closer to the full roll-out of the program, we will make sure to share more details and how you can become involved. For more information on The Light House, please visit lhcampus.com
With respect to VETSCT, the relationship has continued to grow in a positive manner beneficial to both organizations. Primarily, we had a very successful fall whereby the HHH staff was able to help VETS participants enjoy mounted activities. This offering is an important milestone for VETS as they continue to grow their program. The VETS staff and volunteers have been busy with projects around the farm to include the upgrade of the shavings shed, repair of the Kawasaki Mule, along with a list too long to mention here. We certainly appreciate all of their hard work and look forward to their participation in the Volunteer Appreciation Party!
Finally, the herd is happy, healthy and working hard to ensure that our participants get what they need during their lessons! Everyone says thank you for your support, especially to our feeding volunteers who take their time to come out and ensure our horses are given their meals!
