Non-Profits

Since 1939 the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary has safeguarded our Nation’s maritime interests in the heartland, in the ports, at sea, and around the globe. Members from all walks of life bring their training and experience as a member of the uniformed volunteer component of the United States Coast Guard.

Headin’ Home mends lives. As a horse rescue facility, we provide a safe haven for both domestic and wild horses. We work to gentle, rehabilitate, and ready them for adoption.

Using equine assisted therapy, we provide Veterans and First Responders (at no charge) with an effective treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress (PTSD) as well as other traumatic injuries that have damaged their minds, bodies and spirits. We will also work with special needs children and adults that can benefit from the healing power of equine therapy.

Founded in 2007, Heroes on the Water is dedicated to providing veterans services through recurring therapy and growing our volunteer chapter base. In 2018, we officially opened our services to first responders and their families. Our programs are proven to be effective and provide heroes with a way to positively improve their lives, enhance their family dynamic, and impact their community.
