Hope Starts With You!
You are critical in our mission to make True Hope and Real Healing accessible to every child because nearly every aspect of our nonprofit organization is impacted by volunteers. We depend on you and so do our kids and families we serve free of charge.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Hope Reins was built on this foundational scripture because we believe Christians are called to comfort those who hurt, just as God comforts us in our troubles. So, what began in a dusty pasture with two people and a Shetland pony on a hot, July day in 2010, has burgeoned into a community of hundreds of volunteers with an innate desire to be connected, serve others, and glorify God.
As you consider where you might fit in as a volunteer, it’s important to ask yourself how much time you’re able to invest. Many of our most active supporters like serving at Barn Chores every Saturday with friends or family because it gives them the flexibility to show up when they can and doesn’t require formal training or an ongoing commitment. Others, either retired or enjoying a flexible work schedule or family life, can commit to joining one of the volunteering teams who serve weekly/monthly.
Ultimately, there are two ways of volunteering at Hope Reins:
1. One-time commitment, family-friendly with a high degree of flexibility – these ways include:
- Saturday Barn Chores, 8:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Family-friendly with fun chores for all ages, no signup necessary, you can come whenever your schedule allows.
- Join us for a one-hour Stories of Hope Tour, which gives you a behind-the-scenes look at our organization and some of the inspiring stories of hope and healing. This is the best introduction to Hope Reins. PG 13. Contact Lory Schuler to sign up.
- Bring a group from your church, work, neighborhood, scout troupe, etc., to volunteer at the ranch together for a day of service. Saturday and weekday options available. Apply here.
