BECOME A FOSTER FAMILY
Crossroads NOLA is here to connect children in foster care to the families, individuals, and opportunities they need to thrive. We recruit new foster families from local churches, develop them into competent caregivers for kids from hard places through training in TBRI®, and support them through the ups and downs of their journey as foster parents.
Equine Reflections takes a team approach with all our equine-assisted therapy, learning, and education programs. In our Horses4Healing Program (psychotherapy), a licensed mental health professional, a certified equine specialist, and one or more of our trained therapy horses comprise the team. In our Horsemanship Empowerment, Saddle Up for Success, and professional development and education programs, the certified equine specialist and the program horses work as a team alongside the client or group.
