DUSTYS RIDERS Overview
Geographic areas served: Greater Los Angeles Area
We provide at-risk children interactions with horses, taking them out of their present environment, exposing them to opportunities for personal growth building self-esteem and self-awareness.
We currently work with four Boys & Girls clubs (Burbank, Variety (in East LA), West San Gabriel Valley and Watts-Willowbrook) The Dream Center, Helpline Youth Counseling and Dubnoff Center Valley Group Home. We have up to 40 kids visit us per month.
