Raven Rock Ranch's Annual Dinner is to help support the needs of the ranch.
Why We Exist
The need is overwhelming- every year, there are nearly 80,000 referral calls for child abuse in the state of Washington.
Of those 80,000 calls there are only enough staff and funding to follow-up on approximately 34,000, of those followed-up on, only about 10,000 receive services.
Children and teens who have experienced traumatic events feel isolated from their school group, family and their community at large.
We need to offer free services to families before they reach crisis. When we help at-risk kids, we’re not simply helping the child and the family, but we are helping the community at large, because these are children who will grow into contributing members of society rather than law enforcement problems.
Raven Rock Ranch pairs a rescued horse with an at-risk child. The experience of connecting to the horse gives each child a starting place to reconnect with the community.
Our keynote speaker, Buck Brannaman, is a world renowned horse trainer. He was the inspiration for the film “The Horse Whisperer” starring Robert Redford.
Cindy Meehl made the award-winning film “Buck” which was shortlisted for an Oscar. It describes Buck's life as an abused child and later how he overcame that to become a world renowned horse trainer. Buck also wrote a book, “Faraway Horses”, and it tells the story of how he got involved with horses and how they saved his life. We, at RRR, know exactly what he means.
Please join us this evening for this uplifting and inspirational event.
