We are very proud to announce our commitment to donate a portion of our annual sales revenue to Raven Rock Ranch, located in Redmond, WA.
The ranch pairs at-risk youth with rescued horses. Their mission is to break the cycles of human trafficking, domestic violence & teen suicide.
The organization was founded 10 years ago by Sandy & Tim Matts. Sandy holds a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology and creates all therapeutic strategies for the program.
Currently the ranch is home to 10 horses serving 30 youth, ranging from age 7 to 18 years.
Clients do not pay any amount to participate in the program. The ranch is 100% funded through private donation.
There is currently a waiting list of horse owners wishing to donate their horse to the ranch.
The ranch is also in need of volunteers of all types.
In addition to basic needs, the horses receive acupuncture, chiropractic and massage care.
A wealth of additional information is found on the organization website.
