What We Do

Shining Hope Farms is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to enable children and adults to reach their full potential through the use of equine assisted activities and therapies. We currently serve 200 children and adults weekly between our two main programs (1) Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy, and 2) Therapeutic Riding) and our three locations.

Interesting Info

We are the only provider of Hippotherapy in the Charlotte region.
36% of the families we serve are below 200% of the poverty line and we serve the majority of our participants for free.
90% of our participants have made significant functional gains that help to improve their quality of life (and their family's) after receiving services.
