Bit of Hope Ranch is a Christian faith based organization that opened its gates in 2007 to hurting children, families and horses. This non profit organization is governed by a board of directors and enlists the help of volunteers, professional therapists, horse specialists and generous donors. The Ranch is also CHA site accredited, making the safety of horse and human a top priority. The Ranch offers mental health, physical therapy and educational programs.
The Ranch offers a variety of Equine Assisted wellness programs and support modalities for mental/behavioral health as well as for physical therapy needs. These researched backed models of therapy have helped children, adults and families deal with trauma, depression, disorders and a variety of special needs challenges.
Horses are the main element in the treatment plans as they have natural characteristics that facilitate positive emotional and physical changes. Our other farm animals also have a role to play.
Walking/riding trails and natural play areas overlay the 50 acre Ranch. A sensory trail and natural playground allow clients to enjoy the outdoors, therefore improving their approach to therapy. This natural “green space” is another part of the unique therapeutic environment found at Bit of Hope.
