Horse Assisted Therapy for Veterans "As prey animals, horses are hypervigilant until they learn they are not in danger. ... Because of their own hypervigilance, veterans with PTSD easily understand and can relate to the trust and hypervigilance in a horse."  Read more about Horse Assisted Therapy.

Volunteers are a critical part of our program success at HARTH Foundation.  Without our volunteers, it would be impossible for us to provide the programs we offer.  We need volunteers for all types of things.   Training will be provided where needed and volunteers will be scheduled based on your availabiity and preferences.  Have a special skill and would like to help?  Have questions?  Please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
