The Need for H.O.P.E Continues

Winter has brought not only cold and snow but an increase in mental health deterioration for many people. 
We continue to help as many people as we can, via animal-assisted psychotherapy, to find light and life each day. Even when the vaccines reach everyone, there will still be so much work to get people back to emotional stability. Your dollars give us H.O.P.E. that we will get there together.

Growing to Meet Your Needs

We are in the middle of a campaign to RAISE H.O.P.E. with an end goal of putting up a Round Pen at our facility. The Round Pen is a training tool that will build on our success with equine-assisted therapy. The Round Pen will allow us to increase the number of clients served while decreasing their symptoms of depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, bipolar and ADHD. This space will also serve as an area to work with Veterans, Law Enforcement, and other First Responders.

We Need Your Help

Could you give today? $50, $100, $150 would make a huge difference and enable H.O.P.E Ranch to: 

  • Build The Round Pen on the farm, where clients and horses will work together as crucial therapy partners.

  • Add more Equine Specialists to reach more people and increase our impact. 

  • Enable the H.O.P.E Ranch Foundation to provide in-depth services to support healing on our ranch southeast of Rochester

Donate Today! 

Your financial donation is needed now to make an impact yet this spring. We still need $10,000 to make The Round Pen a reality. Your tax-deductible contribution will bring H.O.P.E to many in need of life-saving psychotherapy in our communities.
