TROTT was officially formed in 2015. As a mother, previous foster parent and years working with children I felt the sense of urgency to establish a dedicated program for teenagers. I wanted to provide outlet for them to turn to when feeling pressured or bullied. Maybe a direction to connect with other peers positively. Or interest they've gained to avoid negative pursuits. Together Reaching Out To Teens, LTD is a non-profit organization focusing on awareness, bullying, acceptance and advocating for our youth to promote avenues for our future leaders through resources and opportunities. I truly believe that horse and human interaction can create a sense of healing and bring something wonderful to the communities.
Our story is simple! To create healing to both horse and human. Although our program was originally created for teens, over time we opened the doors to our community so that many age groups are offered a variety of opportunities.
We are also excited to announce Ray of Hope which has become a sanctuary for ponies in need and invite you to visit that section of our website.
Communities play a major role in our success.
Non-profit organizations rely heavily on the help of the community to assist and get through small-scale projects, receive donations to help in return our community through the goods and services of our program, to help spread awareness and to volunteers in order to fulfill the mission of what this program has to offer. Without the help of the community we would not be able to operate its full standard and offer the many great opportunities to help shape our world. The purpose of this organization is to unite, so lets unite together and create harmony, balance and peace to both horse and human.
