Detroit Horse Power teaches youth valuable life lessons through riding and caring for horses. Many of our students come from around Michigan Central Station in southwest Detroit. Approximately 2/3 of our non-personnel program budget (over $20K/year) goes to provide transportation to get students to/from the high-impact opportunities we offer. With the wide geography of the city, the burden put on families struggling toy get by, and the limited access to reliable transportation in our communities, we are committed to filling this gap even though transportation eats away such a significant amount of the funding we receive from grants and donations. Increasing access to safe, reliable, and affordable transportation solutions would increase our capacity to serve more youth and equip this next generation of Detroiters with the social-emotional skills that we learn from horses, setting them up for future success.
