GOAL 2: The Saving Grace Board of Directors is engaged, accountable to the mission, and helps Saving Grace stay in compliance with the by-laws and all local, state, and federal requirements
GOAL 3: Saving Grace is supported by a qualified team of staff and community volunteers
GOAL 4: Saving Grace strives to provide structured private or group programming that will teach horsemanship skills and education that relate to life skills, life goals, etc. and carry over into improvements in life skills, such as: improved posture, balance, gross and fine motor skills, improved educational performance, improved socialization, decreased negative behaviors, decreased meltdowns/tantrums, decreased substance abuse, and more.

Saving Grace Farm's Board of Directors is actively involved in overseeing the organization's operations and focused on seeing it succeed. The Executive Director of Saving Grace holds a BA in Therapeutic Horsemanship and Business Administration. She is a PATH International (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International) Certified Instructor and a PATH Certified Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning . All of the organization's Therapeutic Riding instructors also hold certifications through PATH Int'l.
The organization regularly seeks the needs assessments of the local community and actively engages community leaders in addressing how Saving Grace can adapt to meet these needs.
Saving Grace operates in a convenient location to local schools, businesses, and families and is easily accessible through visits, web, and phone.
The organization also makes every effort to keep programming affordable to groups and individuals, offering a scholarship program and a concerted effort to never turn anyone away due to their inability to pay for services.
Saving Grace Farm is reevaluating its current Strategic Plan to account for growth and progression. Including the possibility of acquiring a larger location and building or buying a facility that can accommodate services of the organization and needs of the community.

Saving Grace Farm is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and strives to meet transparency expectations for this type of organization.
Saving Grace Farm is also a Premier Accredited Center through the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) International. This accreditation means that we meet or exceed all mandatory and at least 80% of the non-mandatory standards, on safety and professionalism, of our industry. The organization has held this elite status since 2007. Out of over 800 PATH member centers, only approximately 200 centers hold this title in the world today. Our most recent visit scored 100% in compliance of standards.
Saving Grace Farm has received several accolades locally in the news and from other organizations as an organization providing great services to the local community.
