Programs

Each day, many people – people just like you – provide help to those in need. Our network of generous donors, volunteers and partners share a mission of serving those who serve at home.

We roll up our sleeves and donate time, money and hard work. We provide support to military and first responders' children in order to enrich families to connect, restore,and thrive. 

We do this every day because Hero Kids Foundation is needed - every day.

Areas of Support

EQUINE SCHOLARSHIP FUND

​Learn riding in a safe and fun environment. Lessons for children and adults are led by certified instructors and run from 30 – 60 minutes depending on the needs of the rider. Lessons are offered weekly throughout the year.

Hero Kids Foundation is able to provide nature based equine facilitated psychotherapy. Barb Ford, M.A, NCC, CTRI, as director of Equine Programs, provides support for wellness, women’s issues, solution focused therapy, and family counseling.

 

This nature based program allows Hero Kids Foundation to provide a unique opportunity for the children, and family, to deal with the daily stress of having a parent(s) in uniform serving their community and country.

 


Our Scholarship provided access to: one on one (1 child to 1 horse) therapy, children’s group and equine therapy and opportunity for family counseling in a nature based setting. The number of sessions a family receives is dependent on combination of therapeutic modalities. 

NATURE BASED ACTIVITIES

In our nature based programs we will provide team building and family dynamics development while engaging in activities such as raised gardens, crop development, outdoor team building activities and nature based family communication and connection activities. We also are developing opportunities for family weekend destination activities that would provide a more personal assistance to families. We look forward to providing this programming in the near future. Please check back for updates!
