Horses Helping Heroes
“Where we love is home, Home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.”
~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
Our military program, Horses Helping Heroes, was developed to focus on those who serve our country and their families.
Servicemen and women are away from their family on average of six months at a time. When those serving return home they often experience difficulties reintegrating into their previous life, both home and community. Families experience similar difficulties accumulating from the deployment itself.
Horses Helping Heroes is dedicated to help these military families in anticipation of deployment, during deployment, and reintegration.
In October of 2015, Mane Support held its first military task force meeting. We were blessed to have a good attendance of individuals who are dedicated to providing services to those who serve our country and keep us safe. From that meeting developed Horses Helping Heroes. Since that time we have begun to see families who are experiencing the effects of deployment and have a three tier program.
- Tier I – Pre-deployment for the whole family
- Tier II – Deployment for the family members who are home
- Tier III – Reintegration for the whole family as they begin to put things back in place following deployment.
