WHAT IS PURPOSE?
PURPOSE is a respite program for special needs citizens at Blue Sky Therapeutic Riding & Respite. At PURPOSE we focus on three main areas:
1. PURPOSE Mercantile
2. PURPOSE Garden
3. Barn Management.
While at PURPOSE our riders learn life, social and job skills that will help them eventually gain employment. By learning art. woodworking, cooking, and just being able to live in community with their friends we are providing an opportunity for our special needs citizens to live out their PURPOSE.
We currently meet on Fridays from 10:00-1:00. but would like to see our program grow and expand by increasing the amount of times our riders get to meet here at Blue Sky. The sales from our PURPOSE Mercantile and PURPOSE produce go directly to financially supporting our beloved therapeutic riding program.
Currently our PURPOSE program takes place in a 400 square foot room. We would like to take space in our existing bam and build a 2,500 square foot room to allow our riders (currently 10-20 special needs citizens + volunteers) room to spread out and have space to create. This PURPOSE PLACE would include a wheelchair accessible efficiency kitchen and bathroom, plenty of workspace, and storage for materials.
This room would contain windows and a sitting area on the south end that would overlook our existing arena where parents can comfortably sit and watch their children ride…. or maybe even read a book in peace.
The PURPOSE PLACE would open up into a wheelchair accessible greenhouse on the west side, and our Blue Sky Barn on the south side. The greenhouse materials, which have already been donated to us by Precision Landscaping of Dallas, would allow us to have raised beds and accessibility where all of our riders could participate in the gardening process.
WILL YOU BECOME A PURPOSE PARTNER?
Let’s join our community and have an old-fashioned ‘Barn Raising Party” as we work together to get the PURPOSE PLACE built. Help us make this room and program look just as amazing as our special needs citizens are. Will you partner with us?
