THE STORY:

We have been invited to participate in the Art Van Charity Challenge to raise money for HUGS Ranch. As we raise money for our cause, we win the opportunity for additional grants from Art Van.  We sure hope you will help us be successful beyond our wildest imaginings! 

Your $75 donation covers the cost of a child for 1 equine therapy session, a $300 donation covers the cost of a child to attend the entire program, which includes 4 sessions.  Please help...

HUGS provides a safe, Christian environment for hurting and emotionally challenged children at no or low cost.

These kids span a wide range of emotional challenges and mental disorders including autism, sexual abuse, a death in the family, depression, bipolar, eating disorders, and more. Working with a horse helps the kids to build self esteem by developing a sense of responsibility. In a non threatening environment, they learn to trust and overcome fear and anxiety.

This challenge runs thru June 22 at 1:59 pm. Our goal is to raise a total of $150,000 towards an indoor arena which will allow us to operate year round and provide healing for many more children.

Every summer, our session slots are filled to the brim.  Last year we ran after school fall sessions for as long as the weather held out.  With the addition of an indoor arena we would be able to run sessions year-round.  For us at H.U.G.S., the thought of reaching that many hurting youth is overwhelming, and so powerfully exciting!

Another way you can help is to sponsor 1 of our 15 horses. Each horse requires feed, bedding, veterinary services, and farrier care.  If you are willing to help with these costs here are some guidelines:

Donating $25 will care for one horse for one week

Donating $125 will care for one horse for one month

Donating $325 will care for all the horses for one week

Donating $1300 will care for one horse for one year

Thank you so much for your help!
