RSVP of Dane County Amount Awarded: $2,000
The purpose of RSVP Vets Helping Vets (VHV) is to match veteran driver volunteers wherever possible with veterans and their family members (primarily spouses) in need of rides to medical and other important appointments. As veterans themselves, our drivers can relate well to their passengers. If these ride services were not available, many Stoughton veterans would be unable to get to appointments that help them remain independent. Alternative transportation arrangements, especially to medical appointments in Madison, are expensive from Stoughton. In addition to providing a valuable service to veterans, this program provides Stoughton area volunteers with an opportunity for meaningful service, helping them to remain healthier through being active, contributing members to their community.
Three Gaits Amount Awarded: $2,500
Three Gaits could not function without our therapy partner horses. Aurora, Belle, Beauty, Darren and our five other horses are the programs heart and soul. Parents tell us that children who have been in various therapies all their lives get excited about coming to Three Gaits, while they may resist therapy elsewhere. Parents of challenging adolescents tell us that “horse time” is a valuable motivator for accomplishing schoolwork and complying with behavior plans. A woman with multiple sclerosis tells us that, on the back of a horse, she feels like herself despite all the changes MS has made to her body. In 2015, our horses delivered 3,187 units of service including 2,345 units of horseback riding, 453 units of hippotherapy, 135 units of carriage driving, and 42 field trips. This projects purpose is to help keep our horses healthy and, in turn, our riders happy.
