Celebrating 24 Years! Help Make a Difference!

andyDear Friends,
Celebrating our 24th year of existence, we are grateful to the Central Ohio community for their continued support of The Shane Center as we continue to expand our high quality programs and offerings.  Our riding programs improve physical fitness, gross and fine motor skills; encourages friendship and responsibility; and builds social skills, self-esteem, character and confidence.  We are dedicated to serving participants of all ages and abilities by providing a venue that is safe, empowering, and non-judgmental. 
The Shane Center is proud to be a Premier Accredited Program through PATH, International (The Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship).  We offer innovative equestrian activities that are life changing for our participants.
No client has ever been denied services due to financial circumstances.  In order to achieve our mission and continue to provide services, we rely on the generosity of individuals, businesses, and foundations for support.  You can see from our financial report that we have been operating slightly in the red the past two years. Your gift is needed now for us to maintain our programs and services.  
As you reflect on this giving time of the year, we ask you to consider a gift to The Shane Center today to make an impact in the lives of children and adults with special challenges. Your generosity will make a difference to our community.
Thank you in advance for your support!
Karen M. Sanchez
Executive Director
