H.O.P.E.-full Pastures

Restoring lives by promoting


Healing, Order, Peace, and Encouragement.  


We LOVE children and animals!  Our heartbeat is to break the cycle of generational trauma by offering animal-assisted services for the family as a whole while demonstrating love and compassion to children who are most in need, serving foster, adoptive, birth, and kinship families. .  We provide mentorship for parents & provide a unique program for younger siblings, We have a passion for healing hearts through creating relationships with animals and our Creator.


We strive to create a safe, therapeutic environment to help vulnerable youth
overcome fear, loss, and trauma. Our goal is to restore lives by promoting healing,
order, peace, and encouragement. 


We exist to provide a secure, family atmosphere where each individual can
receive acceptance, a positive experience for children and families to
learn about the saving hope of Jesus Christ through animal-assisted activities
in a peaceful, calm, rural setting.

To offer hope and education to vulnerable children and families through animal-assisted interventions, equipping them with tools and strategies to live a hope-FULL, meaning-full, purpose-full life. 


Our Motivation:

Animals provide a purely non-judgmental space for our program kids to work out their problems. Evidence proves that interacting with animals has resulted in behavioral improvement in children. 


The unspoken connection one can have with an animal can help aid in the healing process. The presence of animals themselves is soothing and can more quickly build rapport between an advocate and program child.

This animal-assisted learning experience encourages deeper

relationships resulting in expediting the healing process.


Our Sessions:

Sessions are offered in 6-10 week increments, depending on the season, three times per year.

Depending on the need, families commit to participating in each session until goals have been met, and the family reaches a level of wholeness where they can return to serve and give back to the community.
