Believing in the innate goodness and potential in every child


Since 2005 the Equine Alliance Youth Foundation has provided experiential learning therapies utilizing horses to assist youth participants with personal growth and development. Our year-round programs serve and promote both human and animal welfare through collabroative and preventative partnerships.

EAYF partners with multiple human and animal service agencies on the Central Coast. Including; the California Conservation Corps, Family Care Network, CASA Court Appointed Special Advocates, God's Havens for Children, NCI Achievement House, Kinship Seneca Family Services of Agencies, Family Ties, the Department of Social Services and County Community Adult & Juvenile Work Service Programs, along with local and private schools.

Together we improve the quality of life for youth while strengthening agency effectiveness in delivering unique comprehensive programs that create opportunities empowering youth to engage in their own life improvement process. Over 2,000 participants have benefitted from equine-based experiential learning therapies.

No other human services agency on the Central Coast offers such an innovative, unique, comprehensive and proven intervention services free of charge for underserved participants, families and our community.

Equine Alliance Youth Foundation is a federal registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit charitable organization. We receive no government-state funding and have no paid administration.

Please, if you support what we are doing, then consider this - we can't do it without your help. We need your financial gift now more than ever to keep our services free of charge for those in need. Your contribution to the Equine Alliance Youth Foundation, regardless of size and scale, is an investment in our community’s youth and future.
