Hope Grows Winter Fundraiser

with No Comments

We are a refuge for children and families of all abilities and backgrounds. We encourage growth, healing, and learning through compassionate relationships between animals and people. One parent recently shared with us that Hope Grows “is all my kids have been talking about the whole week.”

Mentoring, accessibility, and education are a large part of what we offer. We strive to pass on skills and hope to youth and adults alike. We offer an inclusive, welcoming place for all. Our programs help people to develop increased social skills, self-confidence, and joy!

We want to express our gratitude to our founders Raymond and Carolyn Chauvin for their incredible dedication and generosity. For the past 7 years, they have put their heart and soul into building this incredible space and program. However, after developing incredible learning opportunities and facilities, Raymond and Carolyn are now ready to take a step back and pass the reins to the next generation

We provide a variety of experiences for all ages and abilities. Key aspects of our program are:

 Riding Lessons
 Therapeutic Riding
 Horse Rescue
 Mentoring
 Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy
 4-H Club
 Volunteer Opportunities
 A Garden and Greenhouse
 Accessible Facilities for Weddings, Graduations, Corporate Events, etc.

Please, help us continue this Legacy of Hope which serves countless children and adults as they navigate our fast changing and often insecure world.

P.S. Every gift makes a difference. Your financial donations to our non-profit will be used to directly impact on-site programming.

With so many folks these days glued to their computers and phones, what better investment than to provide them with an educational, wholesome farm experience? Our participants are riding and interacting with horses, feeding small farm animals, gardening and learning many practical life skills. With your help, we are building important relationships and strengthening our community.

We are helping people to learn the social skills and work ethic necessary to be successful for the rest of their lives.

No contribution is too big or too small.

Hope Grows Community Farm Program would like to extend a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all! Thank you for your consideration.
