SHERIDAN — Children, Horses and Adults in PartnerShip Equine Assisted Therapy officials announced that the nonprofit has received a $7,500 grant from the Johnson Foundation of the Rockies. The grant is for general funding in support of equine assisted activities and therapies in Sheridan and Johnson counties.

“The Johnson Foundation of the Rockies is a new partnership for CHAPS,” said Kristen Marcus, CHAPS executive director. “We are deeply grateful and excited to serve our community on behalf of this partnership.” 

CHAPS serves youth, adults and veterans with physical, mental, social and/or psychological disabilities. General funding from foundations such as the Johnson Foundation of the Rockies helps with bills other than direct service.

These bills can include lease of the facility, utilities, liability insurance, auto/trailer insurance, facility maintenance, equipment maintenance, veterinary bills and other expenses.

CHAPS is grateful for this new partnership with the Johnson Foundation of the Rockies and looks forward to a successful 2018. CHAPS opens for the season Feb. 27.
