Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of CHAPS Academy is to serve children and families living with emotional or behavioral difficulties through the use of creative counseling and equine-assisted mental health activities. CHAPS empowers clients to achieve ongoing productivity and success within their home, at school, at work and in the community.
CHAPS provides hope and healing through creative counseling to youth, families and others who are struggling with emotional and behavioral challenges.
Hope Lives is a state of the art, developmentally appropriate, and uniquely successful equine-assisted youth suicide prevention and intervention program. Those served are severely depressed, suicidal, self-abusive/destructive and barely engaged in the activities of life: school, athletics, church or family. They are frequently using drugs or alcohol, are sexually promiscuous, and involved in associated legal difficulties.
The purpose of the Hope Lives program is to prevent suicide, reduce psychiatric hospitalizations and treat severely depressed youth and their families so that they can lead successful and productive lives. When these outcomes are met, the quality of life for the youth, their family, and those living in the communities is enhanced.
