Inspiring Young Woman Creates Scholarship Fund, and Needs Your Help!

Mane Support’s Steve Dake Scholarship Fund

….helping children and families find hope and healing

Facing physical challenges since birth, Lauren has practiced determination every day but little could prepare her for what may have been the greatest challenge of her life…the death of her beloved father, Steve Dake. Overwhelmed by grief, Lauren came to Mane Support. With the help of equine counselor, Banjo, Lauren rediscovered strength and resilience in the face of loss. Now, Lauren wants to share Mane Support with others, especially those in our community who don’t have the financial resources to get the help they want and need. The Steve Dake Scholarship Fund, providing scholarships for families in need, will help Mane Support be a place of help and healing for anyone in the community who is hurting.


Your financial gift of $300 provides counseling for two months. All proceeds go to help the children and families that Mane Support serves. We thank our supporters for their spirit of giving, and thank you Lauren, for your courage and perseverance that inspires us all.
