A faith-based nonprofit organization  

Meet the Staff-

Soaring Hope Equestrian Center is a member center of the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA).  In addition, Soaring Hope is also a member of the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA).  All volunteers, regardless of experience, participate in training sessions to learn horse care, safety procedures, job procedures, and disability awareness and participate in continuing education on these topics.  For continuity and training purposes and to maintain the quality of our program, we ask each volunteer to commit a minimum of a half-day (4 1/2 hours) every other week. 

Volunteer Management Staff:
Colin M. Foster, Program Director
Koni Foster, RN, Health and First-Aid
Rom Engelken, DVM
Valerie Engelken, Therapy Coordinator

Our volunteer staff is ever-expanding, and we’re always looking for more volunteers.  Please contact us if you are interested in helping provide this much needed service.
