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.
