Help us reach our GOAL OF $10,000! #MakeItPossible
On November 27th #GivingTuesdayCA, Possible is raising money for two great causes!
Equine Therapy Program
Addiction Services of Thames Valley in London, Ontario is developing an Equine Therapy Program for its Heartspace program. Heartspace focuses on specialized prevention, early identification, education, and treatment for women who are pregnant, parenting and substance-involved and their children (prenatal – 6 years of age).
Equine therapy has been shown to be beneficial for people struggling with a wide variety of mental and human development needs, including, but not limited to: addiction and substance use issues, anger management, anxiety, behavioural issues, depression, eating disorders, grief and loss, and trauma and post-traumatic stress.
Equine therapy focuses on the mental aspects of therapy, which is different from therapeutic riding and hippotherapy, which focus on the physical aspects of therapy. The women will not be riding the horses but participate in activities such as petting, feeding, grooming, haltering, and leading the horses.
An equine therapy program would be highly beneficial to the women of the Heartspace program. This experience would help the well-being of the participants, including increased self-esteem, self-worth, self- confidence, self-acceptance, self-awareness, and self-efficacy
Bus Tickets for Client Transportation
They say showing up is half the battle but what if showing up is a battle? Transportation can be a barrier in individuals accessing the services they need to help them in their recovery.
That’s why Possible is raising money to help fund the purchase of bus tickets for clients to be able to get to their appointments at Addiction Services of Thames Valley. If you help with half the battle we will take care of the rest.
