HBA employees and their families helped at Circle A Home for Horses
Circle A Home for Horses, Inc., is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk children and rescued equines through paired bonding, learning and fellowship. Circle A, provides Equine-Facilitated Learning (EFL) programs for at-risk youth living in residential treatment facilities, shelters, group homes, and referrals from Public School systems. Equine Facilitated Learning is a widely accepted and much needed alternative mental health intervention, replacing traditional office-based therapy sessions. Based on a planned program, four or six weeks in duration, neglected or abused horses evaluated by Circle A staff, are paired with children identified as at risk, as well as children with histories of neglect, abuse, trauma, substance abuse, PTSD and eating disorders.
