"Safe Haven Equine Ministries (or SHEM) started as mine and my husband's dream in 2014 and became a legal 501 (c)(3) non-profit in 2015. We searched for a year for the right property and found just the one as winter approached! We are hunkered down to plan and prepare the farm during winter and are excited to be officially launching in Spring of this year! We have LOTS to do to be ready but I am so incredibly excited to finally meet all the participants I've been praying for this past year! Horses and Hope changed my life in my teen years and I can't wait to see others lives changed for the better." - Allie Barnett, Executive Director

SHEM is a three part ministry: 

Healing + Hope + Horses

       Safe Haven is run completely by volunteers and funded by donations. OUR BOARD serves as advisers and accountability to assure an effective ministry. Our THERAPY HORSES are our hardest workers and of course everyone's favorite! We love new comers! We can always use VOLUNTEERS and are always on the look out for more HORSES
