It’s hard to believe that it is the end of May already. It has been a busy and rewarding last month or so.
Probably the most significant is that we got our first grant from A Glimmer of Hope Foundation-Austin. I am so excited about the potential of this innovative new program that the grant is helping to support. It is a Work-to-Ride/Job Coaching Program. The goal of the program is to teach individuals with physical, mental, or emotional disabilities job skills that will be applicable in the real world, allowing them to get real life experience that will translate into job obtainment. Their work on the ranch will also earn them "bucks" that can be cashed in for therapeutic riding lessons. We're currently seeking out eligible students age 16-24 that may be aging out of the school system or who may need some job-life training in order to be successful in life.
