DEAREST SUPPORTERS OF HOOVES WITH HEART,
At the end of this year, Hooves with Heart will be moving from a public foundation to a private entity. If you would like to continue to support experiences with horses for at-risk-youth, below we have provided a short list of not for profit organizations that leverage the unique relationships between humans and horses. We encourage you to investigate these organizations and, if you find a fit, generously support these worthy causes so that they may continue their valuable missions.
Holly Farm’s gates will remain open to youth who are unable to afford the experience of horses. Their fiscal support will be provided privately by The Miller Family and many followers who ride and board at Holly Farm.
Participants and their families, social workers, and mental health professionals have expressed gratitude for your support through letters and emails. I have provided recent letters from families, young participants, and counselors describing how these horse experiences have impacted their lives. Please take a moment to read these as they are extremely powerful.
My journey will continue in the work of supporting vulnerable youth in our region. Originally, these youth sparked my intention to establish Hooves with Heart. My passion to help give underserved youth traction towards success has grown and evolved. Hooves with Heart put me in direct contact with the young people I so dearly want to help. Now, the partnerships, lessons and experiences from HWH have emboldened me to broaden my efforts and my reach, as I know I can have a powerful impact on more youth in my plans going forward into 2017 and beyond.
I ask that you continue to support our community’s youth who desperately wish to succeed and just need a little deposit in their quest for success.
With gratitude and love to you all,
