Certified Horse Assisted Activities and Therapy with Trauma Informed Care
Ranch Good Days is a 501 c 3 non profit organization headquartered in Texas. The non profit charity was formed to support equine assisted therapy for those victims suffering trauma from events such as a sexual abuse, violence and grief, death, and dying events. The STAR Healing with Horses Group Sessions and Retreat program is a day treatment program is made up of eight donated, rescued, and home-bred horses. STAR is available at different locations in Central Texas area.
Ranch Good Days recognizes the positive effects horses have on teen girls and young women, especially those over-coming attachment - trust issues with adult people. Trafficking and young women of the sex trade suffering from traumatic emotional disabilities are of particular interest to Ranch Good Days. Thus we have designed the Texas Girls Ranch Academy Boarding School. This community-based, volunteer-led project is a school model offering 100% support for young women to complete their secondary education and successfully transition into a college or career. Located minutes from a nearby Children's Hospital and within an hour of three major Universities - Texas A&M, Baylor, and UMHB, the students health and therapeutic needs are cared for by individual physicians, therapists, and healthcare providers from those prospective campuses. Funding is being sought for staff, equipment, training and operations.
Donna M. Otabachian, Ph.D., is certified in equine assisted therapy, is a certified teacher, principal and school business official, but has forgone those positions to see the Texas Girls Ranch Academy of twenty beds built for future students. Land and an architect have been found. Dr Donna has helped over 50 teen girls with her horses at the girls ranch to build trust and confidence in life amongst nature and agriculture. Such confidence spills over into the youngster's academics and learning to build relationships. Dr Donna attributes her dedication to this Christ-based mission as a calling from Our Lord to a severely under served demographic - Teen girls with trauma-attachment disabilities.
