This picture says so much.....
My thoughts this week have been focused on feelings of gratitude and the amazing sense of community that has continued at RTT throughout the past 3 months! I am truly grateful for so many things. I am grateful for the generosity of so many who have supported RTT and especially our horses, making sure that their needs are being met despite this change in circumstances and I am grateful for the funding that has been made available through the federal government, ensuring that small businesses and non-profits can weather this storm. I am grateful for our amazing staff and Board members who continue to be flexible and creative in meeting the needs of our clients, volunteers and the organization through so many forms of outreach and connection. I am grateful for the voices on the other end of the phone—be they volunteers or clients and parents—who have expressed their appreciation for the thoughtful way that we are working to reopen. I am grateful for those volunteers who have been at the farm, those who are helping to get the horses back in shape and those willing to take on new volunteer duties as we find our way. I am grateful to those who are ready to resume services, even though so much of this will look and feel different. And I am grateful to those who are being patient and who will need to wait a bit longer, until we feel we can safely meet their needs. This community is unlike any other.
Please know that our commitment to serve and our dedication to all of you has not wavered. We will welcome you back slowly but surely with open arms and virtual hugs and we know that our horses will provide some much needed love, support and connection for all of you. Thank you for your patience and belief in the work that we do at RTT.
