At Out Side In, we provide service to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay. In addition, even though Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is much more effective than traditional psychotherapy, it is also much more costly to provide. This is one reason there are very few organizations that provide Equine Assisted Psychotherapy with licensed mental health professionals. Below are some ways that you can help, however, as always, donations of any amount are always greatly appreciated!o
Child Sponsorship - $1440 One Time or $120 Monthly Donation
We have many children who are referred to us after suffering horrific abuse and/or neglect. These children are usually in need of intense, individual trauma treatment and many are under or uninsured. The cost to provide an entire treatment program is $1440. When you sponsor a child, your money goes directly to cover the costs of treatment for that child. You will receive an anonymous update on the child you sponsored and their progress in the program. The sponsorship can be paid in full or can be billed monthly to your credit card.
Child Half Sponsorship - $720 One Time or $60 Monthly Donation
No all of our children are in need of individual treatment and may respond to a small group treatment program. In addition, we often have children who have some access to funding though other human service agencies or though Medicaid. Unfortunately this rarely covers even half the cost of service since Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, although much more effective, is also much more costly to provide than traditional therapy in an office setting. We rely on our generous sponsors to help cover the remaining cost of therapy. Your tax deductible donation of $720 will cover the remaining cost of therapy for one of these children, and can be paid in full or billed monthly to your credit card.
Veteran Sponsorship - $840 One Time or $70 Monthly Donation
Your donation will sponsor a disabled Veteran suffering from PTSD in our Heroes for Horses program. Veteran's spend four hours a week working with a horse assigned to them under the guidance of an Equine Specialist. They also spend a minimum of one hour per week with a licensed psychotherapist trained in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. By combining work with the horses and the therapeutic component, Veterans are more engaged and committed than in traditional psychotherapy. Veterans are much less resistant to addressing emotional and mental health symptoms through their work with a horse who is dealing with many of the same negative emotional issues.
Not only will you be helping to change the course of Veteran's life, but you will be giving a horse a second chance.
Horseshoes for Heroes - $100
Do you have a Veteran in your life that you would like to honor? For a donation of $100 you can buy a Horseshoe in their name. When 100 Horseshoes are sold they will be made into an American flag to be displayed proudly in our indoor arena. Your Veterans name will be engraved on a brass plate and displayed on their Horseshoe.
