Many years ago, we developed a program at Welcome Home called “Dreams Can Come True.” What started as an idea, was brought to reality by our amazing team.
The Dreams program as we call it, is basically a “Make a Wish” type of program for the residents who call our communities home. Residents write in what their wish is, and as a team, we try to make as many of those dreams a reality. It takes hard work and dedication to pull off each and every one of these dreams. This award winning program continues to shine for us and we are amazed each and every time a dream is made a reality.
This past summer, we put out the challenge to our teams to see if they could out do themselves and boy, did they ever.
Hazel grew up on a farm and loved to ride her horses, so her wish was to ride a horse again and with the help of the volunteers at Project Astride, we were able to make her wish come true!
She rode their horse “Andy” and before the ride she groomed him and help saddle Andy up for the ride!
Afterwards, she had the chance to give Andy a special treat for doing such a great job!
She received a certificate from Project Astride stating that their horse Andy helped to make her dream come true!
Thank you Project ASTRIDE for being apart of this wonderful dream!
Hazel wasn’t the only one seeing a dream come true. Below are a few more.
