Speakers: Staff of Faith Hill Farm and St. Mary’s Home for Children

This week’s meeting was our “Million Dollar Meal” and was provided by Faith Hill Farm on their site. We got to mingle with the horses! St. Mary’s is a non-profit offering comprehensive treatment programs for boys and girls traumatized by abuse or experiencing the challenges of psychiatric disorders. The number of children sexually abused is higher than you might think. Children are treated and cared for in the residential, educational and out-patient programs located in North Providence. They focus on treatment and healing while providing the support and skills necessary for the preservation of families.

One of their methods of treatment is an equine program held at Faith Hill Farm; each child’s session is several weeks long. The staff of both programs explained how that therapy works and we all got to join 4 horses in a ring to interact. Our Club has applied for a District Grant to provided funds for a couple of children to attend one of the several week sessions.

Please note that as this was our “Million Dollar Meal”, everyone who was unable to attend is asked to send their $20 checks into John.

Please join us next week in person or by Zoom.
