I started volunteering at Rose's a year ago. I found them online and it seemed like a perfect fit for me to be able to work with special needs kids and horses. I started with barn chores in the summer and then moved to classes with the students 3 days a week in the Fall and Spring. Rose's founder, Joan Twining is an inspiration to the volunteers, teachers and especially her students. It is such an overwhelming joy to be able to see the students overcome their fears and learn so much. I love getting to know each of their personalities and am sad when each session ends. I can honestly say that the opportunity to serve at Rose's has made more impact on my life than I ever expected.
