Mental health in Southeastern Minnesota is more important than ever before in these times. Kit Muellner, owner of HOPE Ranch, provides valuable psychotherapy to clients who, more often than not, need financial assistance to get the help they need. HOPE Ranch provides low-cost animal-assisted psychotherapy. Funds raised will be used for client scholarships and the costs to care for the animals.
Fundraising efforts are needed to provide programming by EAGALA certified practitioners, client scholarships, and to care for animals.
Animal-assisted psychotherapy is provided, in a variety of settings, and may be group-based or individual in nature. The process is documented and evaluated, and the animal is an integral part of the treatment process.
Horse Powered Growth and Learning programs include programs related to students becoming more intrinsically motivated learners. Animal-assisted activities are delivered in a variety of environments by specially trained and certified professionals, working with animals that meet specific criteria.
Programming includes social skills groups for youth; young women’s groups; young men’s groups; family groups; groups for youth and adults with PTSD; parenting groups; and horse-powered learning (tutoring).

Funds raised will also support programs to raise, feed, and care for the animals utilized in the work, including veterinary, farrier, stable, pasture care, and other services necessary to provide for the well-being of the animals.
