The Human Animal Life Foundation was established with a vision to make a substantial impact on the integration of animals into people’s lives where the quality of life for both will be improved and sustained. Living here on earth, we as humans cannot sustain without animals, we must coexist. The impact humans have on animals can have a tragical or a magical effect and most certainly that is in the hands of humans. On the other half, the impact animals have on humans can also have a tragic or a magic effect where that too is in the hands of humans. All of us can become a part of the half that leads, the half that interacts and the half that is part of the solution, until we become the whole. Believe in the power of we - We Hope We Ease We Love We Pray - We HELP

In most communities there is all too often a disconnect between people and animals where animals are thought of as a separate part, as opposed to an integral part of life. This problem increases in the less rural areas.

MIracle Ranch for Children and Animals
Miracle Ranch Group Home for Children is a faith-based residential care program which operates in a therapeutic nature-centered environment to promote Human-Animal Interaction with a goal to make a substantial impact on the integration of animals into people’s lives where the quality of life for both is improved and sustained. Through this interaction on a daily basis, as a model for living, our program is designed to emotionally and psychologically bond each child to the animals who require as much unconditional love, understanding and acceptance as they do. The methodologies used teach each child to provide excellent care for all animals and the environment developing real life skills focusing on empathy, responsibility, nurturing and proper care of the animals and environment. The children benefit from their interaction with domesticated animals and animals in nature. Being in the nature-centered environment also avails the children to learning ranching and farming skills as well as providing a solid foundation of work ethic and responsibility in preparation for adulthood. Other basic but fundamental skills are learned during this time include life skills, coping skills, living skills and the importance of appropriate loving relationships. These teachings in turn promote positive behaviors of the children who are in turn taught to apply what they have learned to their relationships with other people and, just as importantly, to themselves as building blocks to self-esteem, self-worth, self-discipline and self-respect.

Human Animal Life Foundation (HALF) exists to promote integration between humans and animals to enhance and sustain the quality of life through charitable interactive programs, to the benefit of both humans and animals, that help prevent abuse and neglect, that provide support in times of tragedy and that include preservation of land utilized as our program facilities for generations to come.
The programs of HALF, such as Miracle Ranch, Saving Equine and HART (Human Animal Relationship Training), positively impact the lives of school age children, and adults, people with disabilities, people with special needs, animals who have been rescued, animals who serve people and animals who are retired from service. Focusing on relationships between humans and animals and interacting with animals helps to teach respect and honor of all living creatures. This human animal interaction (HAI) is critical to preventing abuse and neglect of animals and humans, as well as developing mutual respect where the interaction is the conduit.
HALF is fortunate to have experienced leadership and knowledgeable professionals who are aligned with the mission. The founders are creative thinkers with a vision to share the human-animal-life experience and have authored HALF's unique, effective and successful programs. HALF successfully works hand in hand with several local agencies, state agencies and community professionals such as Department of Children & Families, Department of Juvenile Justice; County Sheriff's Department; County School District, Elementary through High School, both main stream and Exceptional Student Education (ESE) programs including Emotional/Behavioral Disability (EBD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing (DHH).
Throughout the work with humans and animals, as the relationships grow and the bond strengthens, it becomes evident that extraordinary transitions in the humans show development and increase in self-esteem, self-worth, self-respect and most importantly develop a far more vibrant empathetic nerve. In the area of rescue and rehabilitation of our Saving Equine Program the progress clearly shows in the overall better health condition and the peace one sees when looking in the eyes on the animal. Success is accomplished one heart at a time.
HALF has positively impacted the lives of hundreds of children, their families and care teams, as well as hundreds of horses and other animals. HALF has developed and implemented unique and creative programs that have improved and sustained the quality of life for both humans and animals. Although the work of HALF has been met with applause from many community members the objective to increase fund-raising revenue remains a challenge.
