The Gentle Barn's Violence Prevention Program for at risk, inner city and special needs kids starts this month. Our 10 month program hosts kids who do not respond to traditional therapy and who are kept either on medication, in foster care or in jail because they have no where else to go. 
Coming to The Gentle Barn can change their lives forever. 
The foster homes, probation camps, drug and alcohol rehab centers and inner city schools that desperately want to bring their youth to our program this year cannot afford to come, so we need to raise the funds for them. Our program costs us $400 each time the kids come and $4,000 for the entire year.  Help bring  youth to The Gentle Barn to learn kindness, compassion, confidence and find themselves.

Our beloved Cinnamon Apple Pie left us this week. 
She was very old, in her 30's, and was in bad shape when we brought her home 10 years ago. The weekly acupuncture, chiropractic, ultrasound and massage therapy made her feel better, kept her mobile and gave us many years with her. 
We are so sad to see her go.
