What happens here at ANT is different. You are not seen as your diagnosis or your limitations - you are seen in your wholeness. The horse and other animals see us this way and have taught the humans here to follow suit. Being seen without limitations, seeing one in their wholeness reminds me of a little boy who came here years ago. Bouncing around the foster care system, he was deemed unadoptable due to his extreme behavior.
But our horse Mocha changed that.
6 months after he left ANT, the boy was adopted by a wonderful family. Later, he would tell us that Mocha "taught me to love and be loved."
Your gift provides hope & healing to youth, veterans, and families, who may otherwise not have access to meaningful mental health care. Thank you for investing in their lives and new possibilities.
