How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

The primary goal is to support, promote and fund scientific research that explores the claimed, yet unsubstantiated benefits of equine-assisted activities and therapies, leading to the discovery of the most effective methods and techniques for conducting thousands of existing and future programs.

The secondary goal is to educate the public (including parents, donors, insurance companies and physicians) on research findings so that equine-assisted activities become more accessible to those in need.

Funding Needs

As a public foundation, Horses and Humans Research Foundation (HHRF) is in a unique position. Our current programming is almost entirely focused on our competitive research grant award and selection process. However, we are not an endowed fund, so we must also constantly fundraise in order to award those funds for research. We are 100% dependent on those who understand the importance of this research. HHRF is pleased to announce our first ever jointly funded research opportunity which was established to address a serious and growing problem in the United States: Untreated mental health problems among returning troops.  Once fully funded, this call for research proposals will focus on equine-assisted rehabilitation for veterans and others who experience Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).  We still need funding for this exciting Call for Proposals to be released- please visit our website www.horsesandhumans.org(http://www.horsesandhumans.org) or contact our office at info@horsesandhumans.org(mailto:info@horsesandhumans.org) for more information to take part in this initiative.
