WEATHER FROM OUR SPONSORS
SHERIDAN — The Roger I. and Ruth B. Macfarlane Foundation in Palos Verdes Estates, Calif., has awarded CHAPS Equine Assisted Therapy a $38,000 grant for scholarships for low-income participants, veterans programming, at-risk youth programming and a pilot program for caregivers of terminally ill loved ones (a partnership with the Sheridan Senior Center).
“We are incredibly grateful for this generous gift,” Executive Director Sue Suddith said in a press release. “The scholarship funding will provide over 375 hours of therapeutic riding for people with special needs, and we will expand our veteran programming to veterans receiving out-patient care at the Sheridan Veterans Affairs Medical Center.”
CHAPS Equine Assisted Therapy was founded in 2004 and offers therapeutic riding, equine assisted activities, equine facilitated learning and psychotherapy for Sheridan and Johnson county community members with special needs.
