Outreach & Collaboration

Print

 

NTRC collaborates with many local non-profit organizations to provide the benefits of equine-assisted therapies. Some of these organizations include:

Big Brothers & Big Sisters of SWFL

Lighthouse of Collier, Inc.

Deaf Kids Club

Shelter for Abused Women and Children

Parkinson’s Association of SWFL

MS Center of SWFL

National Alliance for Mental Health

NewBeginnings Middle School

Beacon High School of Collier County Public Schools

Youth Haven

Friends of Foster Children

PACE Center for Girls

David Lawrence Center

Alzheimer’s Support Network

In addition to our Inclusion Camps, we also offer “Outreach Camps” to groups of children from Youth Haven, David Lawrence Center, Boys & Girls Club of Naples,  St Matthew’s House and Foster Care Council. Many of these campers have never been close to a horse and their initial reaction is often, “big, scary, and smelly”!

However, during the course of the camp, each child learns how to behave around these large, gentle animals, learning new skills and forming a relationship with the horses.
