Arline first heard of AHEAD With Horses (AWH) in the Glendale News Volunteer Opportunity column. She had been retired for a couple of years and was looking for a place to volunteer that helped children. She felt AWH would be the perfect fit because not only do they serve children, but she could also spend time with horses.
After attending the orientation, Arline learned that the students in the program had various disabilities. Her great nephew had Cerebral Palsy and passed away at the age of 9 and she felt that working at AWH was the perfect way to honor him. Whether it’s grooming the horses, assisting in the lessons, talking to the parents, weeding, paperwork–Arline feels most at peace when she’s working at AWH. And, what a joy it is for her to see our students grow and progress each day!
