In 2022, we were awarded a grant from the "J.W & M.H. Straker Foundation" to construct a great room/viewing area to help keep our students comfortable before and after classes as well as holding events, camps, meetings, volunteer training classes among a variety of functions. 

In 2023 " The J.M & M.H. Straker Foundation" came back with a second grant alongside "Belmont County Board Of Developmental Disabilities" that allowed us to construct an addition to the great room which gives us our first ADA Restroom, storage room, and large office space. 

This year, 2024, "Belmont County Board of Developmental Disabilities", awarded us a partnership grant that has allowed us to order "The Equicizer Wooden Horse" for helping our students train before getting on a real horse, and also to purchase much needed adaptive tack.

In 2021 we received a grant from: "The Muskingum Community Foundation" for our safe entry construction. We were able to add a concrete patio entry for wheelchairs and imbalanced students drop-off. This year, 2024, 'The Muskingum County Community Foundation' returned with the continuation grant of the safe entryway with funds to pour a pad to park handicap buses and vehicles to complete the safe entering of our facility.
