How COVID-19 affects Hope Reins.

COVID-192020-10-15T13:55:53-04:00

Hope Reins reopens stronger, because of you. Here’s the plan.

Hope Reins has developed a monthly phased plan over the next several months to safely reopen the ranch that is in alignment with the recommendations by Governor Cooper for the state of North Carolina. We will be implementing recommended safety protocols including but not limited to face masks, hand sanitizer, temperature checks, and social distancing. 

Please note, clients and volunteers will be contacted directly by a Hope Reins staff member to communicate their participation in the monthly phased, reopening plan.

Effective immediately, the ranch will be closed to the public until January 4, 2021. This includes Saturday Barn Chores and Stories of Hope Tours.

However, Hope Reins continues to serve its kids and families because of the generosity of people like you.  Sessions reopened in June, and currently, all 130 kids are back at the ranch!  Thank you.

We will reassess opening to the public after the first of the year and make decisions in congruence with recommendations by Gov. Cooper and the state of North Carolina. 

We can’t wait to welcome everyone back to Hope Reins!
