The Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes today awarded a $6,000 grant to the Horses Helping Heroes Project. The grant will fund no-cost, equine-assisted activities and therapies for wounded veterans in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.
“The Horses Helping Heroes Project is an award-winning program, and we have heard about and witnessed the outstanding work they do for our wounded veterans,” said David Walker, President & CEO of the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes. “We’re pleased to award this grant to fund sessions for the veterans we both exist to serve, and we are confident that the activities and therapies provided will enhance their recoveries immeasurably.”
The Coalition’s $6,000 grant will help fund introductory and advanced sessions during the Fall of 2013. Participants in these classes will be military veterans with special needs and such disabilities as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, brain injury (both traumatic and anoxic), spinal cord injury, amputations, orthopedic issues and stroke.
