Mission Statement

Mission Statement: A soulful retreat back to nature and simplicity, to heal the mind, body and spirit. Vision Statement: Henry’s Home is an all-volunteer 501c3 that provides donors, volunteers, and advocates the organization they require to support our communities rescued and surrendered horses, and other farm animals, as well as our veterans, first responders and their families. Our long-term plan is to expand into a self-sustaining therapeutic retreat center for veterans and their families, first responders and their families, and others in our community who need a safe and loving place in which to heal their souls. A center where all the rescued and donated four-footed members of the Henry’s Home family play an intricate role in the healing and happiness of those who spend time with them.

Description

Henry's Home takes in rescued and surrendered horses giving them a forever home and meaningful work in our Horses & Heroes Equine Learning Program. This program offers veterans and first responders the opportunity to spend as much time with our 26 horses as they want, including ground training, riding and driving lessons, at no cost ever. Horses are the very best therapists and teachers, and we all find healing working with them.

Civilians over the age of 18 are welcome to join our all-volunteer organization as regular daily or weekly volunteers, but you should not expect to work with the horses. There are opportunities to work with them but only if you are willing to really jump in here as a regular volunteer. There are plenty of jobs and projects around the ranch that you will be welcome to pitch in with. And we can always use your help running the business, especially if you can help with data entry, spreadsheet and other office skills, fundraising or grant research, etc.

If you would like to bring out a group for a one-day, morning or afternoon volunteer opportunity, we can always find something fun for your group to do that will be a huge help to us as we grow our programs and build out and maintain our sanctuary property. There is nothing like working outside, with your hands out in nature, together, to bring a team closer, learn new skills.

Henry’s is a great place to volunteer your time to take care of a terrific group of horses that were rescued or surrendered. You also have the opportunity to learn horsemanship or just relax and commune with the horses. If you are a veteran or first responder lessons are free and it can also be a place of healing. Come join the family.

I've never met a more open and welcoming group of people who make up this family of all volunteers. They love these animals and spoil them with the best they can give of their time and resources. It's a great place to learn all about horses and taking care of a ranch. The fact that you are also serving veterans and first responders is a great added bonus. The funny thing is that everyone serves together here . . . you don't know who is the veteran, who is the company CEO, who is the school janitor, etc. You are treated like a guest the first day, but after that you are expected to jump right in to learn and help with just about any area of interest. So much to learn here! And they are so grateful for your help!
