Veterans Healing Farm

 
 
         Transitioning from military life back into the civilian sector is a challenge all veterans face. Unfortunately, many veterans lack the tools, support network, and resources needed to meet this challenge. The results are an alarmingly high rate of veteran suicide, depression, divorce, homelessness, and substance abuse. 
 
          Veterans Healing Farm mission is to serve our nation's veterans by growing and donating high-quality fruits, vegetables, and flower bouquets to veterans and their caregivers free of charge.   Additionally, we support veterans by offering workshops on innovative gardening techniques and foster a thriving micro-community of veterans and civilians who build deep friendships and cultivate emotional, physical, and spiritual health.

Paws for Life Animal Rescue

         Paws For Life Animal Rescue's mission is to develop and maintain a strong network of local volunteers that will allow us to have foster homes to take dogs and cats from rural shelters, provide them with food, love, and veterinary care and find them forever homes, educate the community about animal welfare, and reduce the number of homeless and abandoned animals in our area through our subsidized spay/neuter program. 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope Reins exists to inspire True Hope and Real Healing in every child. Hope Reins offers comfort and hope to hurting children and their families by providing free one-on-one sessions between caring leaders and extraordinary horses, many of whom are rescued and face abuse and neglect themselves.

Our greatest desire is to serve children and youth ages 5-18 that have experienced life challenges such as abuse, trauma, neglect, chronic illness, PTSD, loss. Through connecting them with a horse with a similar story and a caring mentor, children and youth are able to build their foundations of trust, confidence, faith and leadership.
