MANE SUPPORT AT A GLANCE
Mane Support is a nonprofit organization that provides a ministry through equine-assisted grief counseling to children, youth, teens, and adults who have experienced a death, who are anticipating the death of someone they know or who have experienced other types of trauma. Mane Support is located in Blount County with services offered to the surrounding areas, nationally and internationally. The connection that the horse has to healing is a true journey, not a destination.
Mane Support's Leap of Faith
Over the past 15 years, it has resided in Blount County as a nonprofit and as the only free- standing Grief Center, as named by the State of Tennessee. Now with a partnership with the University of Tennessee, Mane Support has the opportunity to offer its services to Roane County, in a satellite form, with the main campus remaining in Blount County.
Mane Support’s Rockwood location, conveniently situated 8 miles from the Roane State Community College Expo Center, is offering overnight boarding for show enthusiasts, leisurely travelers and transporters.
