What is Therapeutic Horse Riding?
This innovative approach enables many individuals with physical, mental, and emotional disabilities to gain life skills and achieve goals that have not been attainable through traditional therapeutic modalities. Therapeutic riding is based on the beneficial movement of the horse. The three-dimensional, rhythmic motion of the horse stimulates and works the muscles of the rider and the experiential learning that takes place is globalized to the world around them.

Jail To Jobs started as a non profit organization 10 years ago. In the beginning, Jail to Jobs offered bible studies in juvenile detention facilities. We saw great success, but despite their desire to change, after their release our youth were being locked right back up again. It was then that we realized the need for social innovation in our program. We needed a better way to support our youth when they were released from jail.
The strategy we found to work is employment-based mentoring. We work alongside our youth, in our job training programs, teaching and empowering them into success while they are earning a wage.
In Jail to Jobs, our youth gain the experience and skills needed to get and keep a quality job – something many of them did not think was possible because of their past.
“Jail to Jobs provides the encouragement and practical tools that motivate students to re-evaluate their reactive choices and take steps to secure a positive future.”

Each year before our school year begins, 6-locally owned businesses from our Cypress community sponsor our school. Each business gives a $1,000 donation and will sponsor one grade level for the school year 2019-2020. We will use the donation to purchase educational subscriptions that teachers have chosen, for each student in the school. There will be zero cost to the student’s family because of the generosity of our Paw Partners. If you would like to be included in this program next year, please contact our Paw Partner Coordinator at email@example.com
