🐴 Exciting News from the John A. Bell Adult Correctional Facility! 🌟
We're thrilled to share the success of our Equine Therapy program, launched last August 2023. 🐎 This groundbreaking initiative taps into the therapeutic magic of our four-legged friends and our deep cultural appreciation for horses.
We're overjoyed to announce the graduation of the first 11 participants! These individuals embarked on a transformative journey of emotional healing and personal growth through the incredible bond formed with our equine companions.
Equine therapy in correctional facilities is valuable as it provides inmates with a unique and non-traditional approach to rehabilitation. Interacting with horses can foster empathy, responsibility, and communication skills, helping individuals build trust and emotional regulation. It also offers a positive outlet for self-reflection and personal growth, contributing to the overall well-being of inmates during their rehabilitation process.
I am so glad the program is a success. Keep up the great work.
Congratulations to all the graduates!!! 🎓 🎉🥳
Mental Healing to those able minded 11 individuals who are willing to help themselves, in order to Help Others .💯💯💯💪🏾👊🏾✊🏾📯
Give thanks to the organizers and the team for All that you do for the people of the U.S.V.I.
C’est tellement important ce que tu fais. Félicitations
