Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Savannah Station is a community of humans and horses, ministering fully to individuals and families; assisting them to overcome life’s limitations, to gain social and emotional confidence, and defy disabilities and challenges, while building families and friendships.

Savannah Station is a member center of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl). As such, Savannah Station relies on the PATH Intl. standards and procedures as well as the policies and principles of Savannah Station. Safety is priority one in everything we do. In addition professionalism and excellence guide us.

The purpose of the Corporation is:
1. To provide equine therapy for individuals with emotional, mental, and/or physical challenges;
2. To challenge those with special needs to work on physical, cognitive, behavioral, and social
skills while riding and working with horses;
3. To develop and deliver demonstrable programs for educating and training those serving in the
field of equine therapy; and,
4. To create an environment of loving acceptance that is individually challenging yet fosters a
sense of belonging and enhances spiritual values.

Savannah Station has four Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructors. Each instructor has completed a rigorous certification process through PATH International, focused on proving safe and effective instruction resulting in participants achieving their highest levels of independence.

Currently, Savannah Station has three more Instructor's in Training working through the 12-16 month certification process.

Savannah Station depends on over 150 well-trained volunteers in order for the program to operate. Each participant starts their therapeutic riding lessons with a team of three volunteers. One to lead the horse and the other two to work on either side of the rider providing safety, support and encouragement.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
