As a nonprofit organization which serves the entire Siouxland area, fulfilling such lofty goals depends solely on proceeds from fundraisers, grants, private donations, and annual giving campaigns.  In essence, help from people like you.  By donating today, your gift enables STARS to Reach Beyond the Ordinary to achieve extraordinary transformations in the lives of the disabled.  Your generous support is used for current programs, new programs, the purchase and training of new horses, on-going maintenance of our facility, as well as scholarships for therapeutic riders.  For one rider, the cost to ride in a 6 week session is $731 and a typical evening therapy class holds 2 to 4 riders.

So please, do not hesitate.  Give today.  Together, we can Reach Beyond the Ordinary through animal assisted therapies.

The success of STARS therapeutic programs are not measured with charts and graphs.  They are not guided by numbers or statistics.  The primary measurement of success is the wonderment in the eyes and hearts of participants whose daily lives are filled with tremendous challenges.  Faced with physical, cognitive, and emotional disabilities, STARS participants gain strength, courage, and confidence through therapeutic interaction with a STARS horse or dog.
