The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation Match will be used to raise money for additional children’s therapy sessions at InStride Therapy. Many of the children we serve at Easterseals Southwest Florida and InStride Therapy have no insurance, limited insurance coverage, or parents simply cannot afford the premiums involved with having their child participate in important therapy programs. We can serve more children who would otherwise be unable to participate, but we need your help.
Children can receive speech therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy through a hippotherapy session. Our Easterseals therapists work together with the staff at InStride to provide this therapy. Each equine therapy session happens at our InStride Therapy facility and requires a full team of 4 individuals per session. This includes one therapist, two side walkers, and a horse lead. With our current budget, we are at our maximum capacity of service, but with your help, we can increase the number of children we serve. All that's holding us back is the financial ability to make this a reality for the children in our community. We are looking to raise $28,800 in order to provide 10 children with the ability to have 48 weeks of therapy at $60 per session. Using 48 weeks will allow for student absences and holidays which reduces the usual 52 weeks in a year down to 48 weeks.
Purpose of Funds:
By raising $28,800, we can provide therapy for 10 children 1x per week for one year for those who cannot afford to participate in these therapies.
