Mikey and the other horses work for their hay, grain, and clean bedding.
Opening Gates has been a not-for-profit organization offering counseling services to residents of Southern Indiana since 2008.  Our funding comes from individual and business donations, fundraising events such as community Easter and Halloween parties, golf scrambles, pancake breakfasts, and restaurants holding Opening Gates days, carry-out dinners, and foundation grants.
Opening Gates, Inc., would not be possible if it were not for the many people who have given of their time, made donations, or both. Words cannot begin to express how grateful I am to have such wonderful supporters of this organization and its programs. Here's a huge THANK YOU to all of you who have done so much, and continue to do so much, for Opening Gates.
Those who attend our Carry-Out Meals fundraisers
Those who attended our golf scramble
Those who attended Rocky's and Marks Feedstore restaurants for their Opening Gates days
Patrons of Hunters Brook Farm programs who give in support of our efforts and those who allow their children to volunteer
Thank you for everything...                       Shara
