Review for Horses Healing Hearts Inc, Boynton Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I could't feel more honored to be a volunteer at Horses Healing Hearts and to be a part of this unbelievable program. As an adult child of an alcoholic, I cannot tell you how much I would of given to have a place like this for me to go to when I was growing up and dealing with an alcoholic parent at home and all of the fear and uncertainty that goes along with that for a child. HHH gives these children a place to actually be heard in a truly safe and nurturing environment. As children of alcoholics or addicts, we learn early on to not talk about certain things within the family and so we are always carrying around many dark and scary secrets. HHH is a safe place for these kids to talk about those things that they were always told to keep secret, and they do it with the love and support of the other children and volunteers. Children dealing with an addicted parent grow up with complete chaos and uncertainty constantly in their world. So having this amazing program that they all come to once or twice a week, gives them something to look forward to and something that they can "count" on, which is so extremely important for these kids. Having something continuous, safe and stable is beyond priceless and this program gives that to these beautiful souls. This program gives hope and support to these children, and that is something I am blessed to be a part of. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else then with these amazing kids!!!
