Animals as Natural Therapy (ANT) invites you to a very special, free breakfast & presentation. The annual Healing Hearts Breakfast brings our community together to celebrate the deep & long-lasting impact that donations have had on youth & veterans seeking healing at Windy Acres Farm.
The breakfast will be held Thursday, October 11th, at Settlemyer Hall on the campus of Bellingham Technical College (located at 3028 Lindbergh Ave). Doors open at 7:00 am, with breakfast served at 7:15 am. The program begins promptly at 7:30 am and will conclude at 8:30 am. Breakfast is complimentary and will accompany the presentation.
While there is no obligation to give, you will be invited to join us in making our work a reality for youth & veterans with your donation.
Since 1999, thousands of at-risk youth & veterans have come to ANT through their teachers, counselors, doctors, foster parents, rehab staff and others for the unique learning experiences that are facilitated at the farm. Participants learn social and emotional tools, confidence, and hope through relationships with our horses, goats, bunnies, chickens, dogs and mini horses. These special animals are their teachers. Skillfully trained instructors and mentors guide the learning opportunities & reflections that have powerful impacts on participant’s futures.
88% of our participants need financial assistance or full scholarships to attend. With your help, ANT can continue to provide unique and effective programs for those most in need in our community.
