Funding for our programs is a very significant part to carry on our daily operations. Horse care is a considerable large portion to continue the programs. The general public is unaware of the normal expenses that entails to manage a herd of horses and always having to be prepared for emergencies. Lack of funding creates a problem with the horses daily care which trickles down to the community to not have these types of programs. Our goal is to continue to offer these programs to the communities of Mercer County with the help of outside organizations and personal donors.

Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
The COVID-19 Pandemic can create at least 3 conditions to Veterans that could build up to a "perfect storm". First is Veterans with pre-existing conditions of mental health. The second is social-distancing/self-quarantining which are necessary to help control the spread of COVID-19 but can cause a sense of loneliness. The third is job/wage loss being a stress event in the life of a Veteran. Lack of funding results in lack of programs to help our Veterans. Funding is in integral part of our programs to keep horses healthy and happy to provide therapeutic our program for Veterans.
