Target demographics: children and adults with physical, emotional, mental, and social disabilities

Direct beneficiaries per year: 72 clients, with a significant increase expected this year

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: help a child with autism say her first word. Or enable the only hour all week that an adult has spent out of a wheelchair. Or help in the office so that those moments in the arena can continue - we need volunteers for all sorts of tasks!

Geographic areas served: Mebane, NC

Programs: therapeutic horseback riding, hippotherapy, inclusive summer camp opportunities, and camps for children and teens with cancer.
