    This month's Purposeful Partner:


    Each month Women with Purpose-Coulee Region will highlight a Coulee Region non-profit organization and ask our guests to donate needed items for that month’s charity. Just bring the item(s) to the monthly luncheon and drop off at the Purposeful Partner table. We will deliver the items to the organization each month on behalf of our Women with Purpose attendees. This is a small way in which we can have a big impact on our community.

    Horse Sense for Special Riders is an animal-assisted therapy that improves and empowers the lives of individuals. They have helped thousands of children and adults both with and without disabilities establish their independence through friendships with the horses. In more recent years, with the support of the Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans suffering from PTSD, TBI and other injuries sustained during their wartime service have begun to find relief through animal-assisted therapies.
