Girls Achieving Lifelong Opportunities with Purpose

Developed through a Manistee Community Foundation Women's Empowerment Grant in 2014, this program is run in partnership with the Centra Wellness SafeNet Program. Serving girls ages seven to twelve identified as at risk of school failure, at risk of failure in future interpersonal relationships, and at risk of reaching personal career goals, activities with horses are designed to bring awareness of healthy physical, emotional and lifestyle skills. Programming serves both Benzie and Manistee Counties.

"I learned that horses/ponies can be abused and hurt, yet still forgive, trust and listen to us humans. If they can heal and trust again, then maybe I can too."
