With 22 suicides a day, our veterans clearly need some assistance finding meaning and satisfaction in civilian life. Not everyone responds to medication or talk therapy. We believe we have a solution for helping vets get right with life in a way that’s action-oriented and empowering. We show them how to change the self-limiting thoughts, feelings and behaviors that separate them from themselves, their loved ones and their lives.
But to do that…
We work with vets who want to improve their relationships. If that’s you — please contact us.
If you know a vet who’s struggling with relationships, let him or her know about us — please contact us.
Make a donation: 100% of your money goes toward tuition for veterans who really want to rebuild healthy relationships at home, work and school. We cannot help them become productive members of their communities without you.
Every one of them were willing to serve and sacrifice all for our country. Please do what you can to help them come all the way home to their families and communities.
Here’s what we need:
- Sponsor a class of 6 veterans through our four-session program – $14,000
- Sponsor one veteran – $2,500
- Provide scholarship funding for one veteran to attend our Facilitator Training Program – $4,000
- Or any other amount …
Volunteer: We have many opportunities to volunteer. Whether you want to be hands-on or have other skills (outside of horse experience) — please reach out! We hold volunteer orientations in spring and fall. We teach you the skills to become a second set of eyes and ears for our facilitators. And, we have many needs throughout the year. Please email kelly@TheEquusEffect.org.
WE ARE MOST GRATEFUL FOR ANY AND ALL CONTRIBUTIONS THAT HELP US GIVE VETS A ‘LEG UP’ ON THEIR JOURNEYS HOME!
