Wow! Hard to believe, twenty-five years ago I was mucking the stalls of rescued horses and volunteering my help with their life changing programs. Now I'm a Board Member of Swan Center Outreach and my love and admiration for this organization for all it accomplishes for individuals and the community it serves, continues to grow. One visit is all it takes for anyone to fall in love with this very special organization.

I have seen and been physically part of the programs that put horses and children from all backgrounds however painful their past may have been, together. When you see the magic that happens, the healing, the joy of these encounters it is "felt" in your heart as much as it is observed. I have seen the look in a child's eyes mixed with a big grin on their face when they have broken through a fear, because of the loving partnership with a horse, and realized that I had witnessed their whole life changing for the better. This happens every single day at Swan Center's camps and classes. Words really cannot explain because there simply are not words to do so. The only words that describe Swan Center Outreach programs are; Love in Action.

Although I am presently a Board Member, I began as one of the many volunteers for the Swan Center Outreach and was fortunate enough for ten years to be active in programs with the children and horses . That's when the magic happens, that's when horses who had been starved, beaten and abandoned, then rehabilitated with love, care and kindness, meet with children who had suffered through many of the same abuses.Everyone involved, or who have taken part in the Swan Center's programs may eventually leave the area but they are forever changed individuals. Children are taught how very special they are and leave with that gift firmly planted in their hearts to last their lifetime. The programs at the Swan Center are educational, stressing the connection between humans and all animals. They are fun and filled with love for all who participate. It is a gift to be a part of this facility and to see the miracles that happen between children, adults and horses.
