    I’ve work with Beauty from Ashes for over ten years and the most influential part is working at the ranch. Seeing how the children can love on the animals is special. My child enjoyed Horse & Art Camp this year that was provided at a minimal donation to the ministry. Julie’s compassion to integrate the animals into the child’s emotions is great! She also has a guest bedroom if you need a retreat for yourself. Julie and Steve open their home to bible studies, young lady retreats and many more to those who want to spend some time out on Florida beautiful country side.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Phone interview, followed by in person meeting for biopsychosocial and strength assessment, basic review of animal and art assisted therapy, safety briefing, tour of ranch, art studio, and introduction to therapy animals.
