Our Heroes, (FB, Our Heroes, Inc; website www.ourheroesinc.org) is a non-profit organization located in Brunswick County, NC. Our Heroes and our community was greatly impacted by Hurricane Florence sustaining a significant reduction in income, additional expenses, and increased demand for our support of the local community. This campaign will sponsor 10 riders for weekly lessons for 10 months (remainder of 2019), fund spring break and summer camp weeks for 35 children, and veterinary care for our program horses. Our Heroes, through the healing power of horses, serves children and adults with a variety of cognitive, physical, and/or emotional challenges. We provide Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT) to our Brunswick County, NC community of veterans, first responders, at-risk/disadvantaged children, trauma survivors, and to adults and children facing a broad spectrum of special needs. We sponsor riding lessons, weekly Farm Life Skills activities, weekly Junior Horsemanship Clubs, Spring Break and summer camps as well as Military and First Responder Mondays--and special events throughout the year. We partner with doctors, therapists, teachers, and parents/caregivers to design specific goals that complement ongoing therapy. Our services also include family members and caregivers. Instructors design and monitor individualized treatment plans for each client to address their specific needs while they learn and practice the skills involved in ground work and riding. Individual and class goals encourage each client to be the best they can be, on and off the horse.
