Zuma's is not only a representation of my family and my upbringing, but also a constant reminder to myself and to others to give back to those truly in need. To take your good fortune and share it with those less fortunate, both human and animal. No matter what occurs in my life, I know I can go to the ranch and be grounded, loved and supported by everyone there. I could not be more proud of my family for their truly selfless undertaking, and my gratitude to them for what their actions and the outcome that is Zuma's has given me. While I am not a learning child or a rescued animal, I truly feel the humanity and good nature I learn each day at Zuma's makes me a better person, a stronger business person and a more aware human being. No matter what your commitment to Zuma's is, I can guarantee you my family, our horses and these children will change your life.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Zuma's has taught me to be patient, caring, aware of the emotions of a situation and taught me to apply my attitude at Zuma's in every part of my life. What you give is what you receive. The more of myself, whether it be thought, time, money or labor - that I give - the more I learn and appreciate Zuma's mission and impact on the lives of all who are involved.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to fund it's continued growth and show more people how powerful and all-encompassing the impact of Zuma's truly is.

The Volunteers at Zuma's make such a huge difference in the possibilities around the ranch. Last weekend Paul the main man at Zuma's was away and Jodi his wife was left on her own to care for the 40 horses.... Well that was not the case as Mike Hoagland a dedicated volunteer showed up and boy was he helpful. There was no water, no of the hydrants would come on and it was not due to freezing. Mike stuck around and helped Jodi figure out the mystery, called a well and pump company, Tri-County Pump answered the phone on a Saturday morning and saved the day. 40 horses with no water is a big big problem. While it took hours to get the water situation fixed, more volunteers showed up and helped out; Lance Giddeon arrived simply to show his father the horses and jumped in and began hauling water from the property next door to all of the horses. Amanda Davis fed all of the horses, Stout Street Foundation's "Gary" and volunteer Amanda Zizza cleaned the pastures, and stalls. It was a hearty group of dedicated volunteers that kept things going this day at Zuma's.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing kids smile as they have an opportunity to work with the horses.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

see the organization funded.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the dedication to providing the best possible care for the equine therapy partners.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Warm, friendly and generous in nature.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change the face of mental health alternatives for at risk youth and their families.

Ways to make it better...

I was not allergic to the horses.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...


One thing I'd also say is that...

If you have an opportunity to serve, serve this organization and make a difference.
