The Hudson Valley Hero Project, Inc. has partnered with Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue, Inc. to provide Equine Assisted Psychotherapy to Hudson Valley Veterans at no charge! Over 18,000 veterans live in Dutchess County.
Your generous donation will provide Equine Assisted Psychotherapy to local Veterans struggling with PTSD, trauma, and reintegration. The high demands put on our service men and women can lead to depression, divorce, substance abuse, and suicide. In fact, 1 in 22 veterans die by suicide a day.
Our services are solution focused and experiential so every veteran has an individual experience. Working with the horses eliminates the stigma of psychotherapy. Every session has a licensed mental health professional and a certified equine specialist.
