Animals as Natural Therapy a highly effective model of Experiential Learning for youth-at-risk & veterans. This year’s Gala is your opportunity to support over 400 neighbors in their search for hope & healing, by you taking care of the horses & smaller farm animals, as well as supporting staff & mentors who will invite your neighbors into transformation. ANT experiences are thoughtfully created to provide tools that participants can use to discover & develop their options: increased self-awareness, new ways to interact & resiliency through growth. Some of our youth step up to serve and befriend elders in the community, taking our animals to visit (in our Mobile ANT van).

The Community of Stars Gala draws “Many Hands” together to “Heal Community”. Most of ANT’s participants need financial assistance or full scholarships to attend. Reach out with Animals as Natural Therapy on this fantastic night and make a difference in someone’s life. Together, we create an opportunity for people to help themselves reach a better future. Together, we have a resilient community.
