Believing in the innate goodness and potential in every child


Equine Alliance Youth Foundation provides year-round emotional and physical healing services free of charge for underserved youth throughout San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties using equine-based experiential learning therapies. Our unique equine rescue and rehabilitation programs empower youth and provide an effective behavioral intervention program that engages its participants in their own life improvement process.

Over 2000 young people and their families have benefited from our programs. No other non-residential program for underserved, at-risk youth offers such an innovative and unique intervention service for positive youth development on the Central Coast.

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. This means that 100% of your tax-deductible donation goes directly to support our youth investment programs.

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.
