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.
Golden Rainbow Ranch is dedicated to using animals, gardening, and the great outdoors to help all people improve their sense of well-being and reconnect with nature.
The ranch is located on 10 beautiful acres of pasture and woodland, with many tame, safe and clean farm animals, as well as 2 therapy dogs.
An air conditioned nature center seats 30, and is filled with arts and crafts, artifacts, books, and science activities.
Golden Rainbow Ranch programs include field trips, indidual family visits, home school classes, Girl Scout Badges, birthday parties, and more.
Children with special needs, at risk populations, and people with mental illness or other disabilities benefit tremendously from being in this engaging environment. Ecotherapy, a new field using animals, gardening, and wildreness, is very effective for these last groups mentioned.
