This week Helping Hand welcomes back Therapeutic Horsemanship of Hawaii. HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence speaks with Executive Director Dana Vennen. According to their website, the nonprofit specializes in riding instruction for special needs individuals, but provides therapeutic riding to individuals of any ability, with a goal to improve the minds and bodies of riders, using horses as partners. They also do outreach with special miniature horses that visit individuals who cannot visit their program, due to physical or financial reasons. They have their Annual Christmas Party Fundraiser Saturday, December 14th from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Waimanalo Polo Field Clubhouse.
Helping Hand is a feature airing statewide on HPR1 stations as part of afternoon drive broadcast of All Things Considered, and then archived online here. Fridays, Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization, topic or event that offers assistance to people with disabilities and people and animals who are among the most vulnerable.
