Want to become a part of the Henry’s Home Family?
To join our family you must be over the age of 18 and are required to take our Training and Safety Orientation. Some volunteers come with years of horse experience, and some have spent their lives afraid of horses and are now ready to get over that fear. All come with an open heart to continually learn. We often get asked if Herdmates can bring out their teenage children; this will be determined on a case by case basis by our Executive Director as we get to know them and determine their level of responsibility and thoughtfulness towards the animals and other family members.
We all pitch in a monthly fee [$75 non-riders, $150 riders] to help support our horses, that fee starts after you complete your orientation and start working with us. If you are a veteran or first responder, or a direct family member of one, that fee is waived. Or if you work for a company that matches your work hours with a financial donation to our sanctuary, that fee is waived for you too. We spend our time feeding, grooming, riding [or not, your choice] and caring for our horses and our other farm animals, as well as our land and facilities. If you have IT skills, marketing experience, fundraising experience, a spouse who loves to build and work with his hands, or anything else that we could use as a non-profit, even better. We all work flexible hours and days, coming when we can, once a week or every day. That’s up to you.
If you are interested in more information, or want to come out for a safety and training orientaiton, please contact our Executive Director, Donna Stedman, at 281-292-1110 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
