Notes from the Nonprofit

At Envision, the horse-human relationship is working. “Horses are helping humans heal" from the effects of abuse, trauma and disability. With the aid of certified instructors, equine specialists a life coach and in collaboration with several licensed therapists, the children, adults and entire families who come to Envision have been experiencing the healing and restorative power of the horse.

The programs at Envision are experiential in nature. They help those who have suffered from domestic violence, physical and sexual abuse, and many emotional conditions including, mood, thought, and anxiety disorders.

With the aid of a horse, equine assisted coaching teaches clients skills that help them with their healing process such as restoring trust, hope and self-esteem, as well as the skills to improve communication, emotional awareness and boundary setting in order to build and maintain healthy relationships with others. Envision also uniquely offers support programs for family members.

Since January of 2014, Envision has delivered 581 client service hours. We have served 49 individual and family clients. During this period generous donors supported our efforts with cash and in kind donations of $123,335. Our goal is to more than double our services by the end of 2016, and we need your help to get there.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).

Diversity notes from the nonprofit
We are welcoming and non-judgmental of people who can contribute to our mission. The therapy horses do not see people through racial, ethnic, political, religious, gender, preference, or other prisms. Labels mean absolutely nothing to these exquisitely evolved social beings. They see people as either safe or unsafe, friendly or threatening, calm or excited or happy or sad or angry. This is a proven highly effective means of successful social and business interaction. Therefore, in keeping with our mission to change lives using the power of the horse, we adopt their policy toward all people who have something to give.
