H.O.P.E.-full Pastures

Restoring lives by promoting


Healing, Order, Peace, and Encouragement.  

We, here at H.O.P.E. – full Pastures love children and serve families who have endured childhood trauma, including loss, neglect, abandonment, and abuse.

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.

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.  

                           Spanish-speaking options are also available.
