We are privileged to serve kids aged 5-18 and their families free of charge at the ranch.
At Hope Reins, we believe hurting people need hope, especially hurting kids. Thousands experience acute crisis in North Carolina every day. Their trauma is a result of difficulties like physical, emotional and/or sexual abuse, neglect, violence, illness, or death of a loved one.
With severe reductions in state-funded mental health and limited accessible services, hurting children and families in our region have few options to pursue healing.
A child experiencing acute crisis needs the foundational elements of healthy relationship: safety and trust. Rescued horses have a unique way of connecting to these needs through their own stories of rescue and restoration. Through establishing a safe and caring relationship, a person of faith and a rescued horse can help the child begin the process of healing.
Since 2010, Hope Reins has helped over 2,000 kids in life crisis from 14 eastern North Carolina counties through its 33-acre ranch, rescued horses and restoration in Christ.
