The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Volunteers are needed to assist licensed therapists providing occupationa, physical and speech/language therapy. Therapists work with clients in our on-site clinic and while using the movement of the horse to achieve clients' goals and objectives. Mane Stream offers speech, physical and occupational therapy. Sessions are offered Monday-Saturday at varying times during the day and evening throughout the year.
Volunteers will support Mane Stream in a variety of roles including: grooming and tacking horses prior to sessions, setting up the therapy clinic, supporting clients during the session and clean-up after the sessions. Volunteers are asked to make a weekly commitment of 1-4 hours. Therapy is held year round at our Oldwick location.
