Do you recall your mother getting you ready to go back to school? Maybe the only thing you remember was how she interrupted your summer play to try on new school clothes or go shopping for supplies. You never saw all the planning, work, and expense that went into getting you ready for a new school year.
The Florida United Methodist Children's Home was established in 1908 to provide a home for orphans and other children that had nowhere else to live.
Today it serves as a diverse ministry with two campuses that include residential, therapeutic group, foster and emergency shelter care. The Home also provides independent living assistance and a community child care center.
In recent years, studies on equine-assisted therapy show that care and training of horses can have a powerful effect on a person. Experts now see the positive benefit it has on children from traumatized backgrounds too — everything from developing healthy relationships and a strong work ethic to overcoming fears, building teamwork and much more.
It is time for SUMMER FUN/ SUMMER CAMP.
