Operation Hope focuses on providing Equine Assisted Psychotherapy to First Responders and their families. We also serve children, teens, and adults with any mental health issues through equine-assisted activities and therapies. Our mental health program serves clients with a history of PTSD, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, adjustment disorder, bipolar disorder, attention deficit disorder, relationship issues, and more. Operation HOPE provides an option for people seeking a new or different response to depression, anxiety, and trauma.
