Our Needs

Compassionate Friends is a 501(c)(3) public charity.  Your support of our program will be cherished by the students and horses and you may have the benefit of a tax deduction.


“Volunteering at Compassionate Friends has been such a rewarding experience. Everyone involved, students, volunteers, parents and staff, are so friendly and all are interested in the common goal; to provide Therapeutic Riding to those in need. Sherri Briggs is outstanding at understanding the needs of her students and training her horses. I look forward to coming every week to be witness to so much friendliness and the accomplishment being achieved with the cooperation and willingness and hard work of all involved. Compassionate Friends is a perfect name.”
