HOW WE DO IT

100% full scholarship summer programming for kids and year-round leadership development for older students allow children to learn love, hope and new life skills through positive role modeling and hands-on experiences. We also serve families and veterans through our equestrian therapy program.

WHY WE DO IT

God has a plan for each of us. Helping our kids overcome what the world has shown them helps them get back on a path of seeking God’s direction for their life. These children are our future neighbors, employees and community members. Every child matters. And while we can’t change their past, we can help transform their future.
