Horses Healing Hearts is a non-profit that uses horses to help children of alcoholics and addicts. One Fourth of our children have lost a parent to suicide, overdose or jail. Through weekly sessions of peer-to-peer counseling and horse back riding, the children learn that although they cannot control their parent’s addiction they can control their own future based on decisions they make now. Our goal is to break the incredibly destructive generational cycle of addiction by teaching healthy behaviors through horses and mentors which enables them to have a successful future. Because HHH provides a safe place to share their feelings, they learn they are not alone and they have the tools to not only survive but to thrive.
