It sure has been a busy summer at Jake’s Help From Heaven! We have had our largest Board of Directors meeting as well as our 3rd Annual Finest Fillies fundraiser both of which have been wildly successful!
Our Board of Directors met on July 23rd and reviewed 49 applications – a new record for one meeting. We approved over $30,000 worth of grants bringing our 2014 total to over $69,000 so far this year! We have begun deliveries and have begun receiving some wonderful thank yous as well.
“JHFH will be generously funding 11 hippo therapy sessions for Ez. We are so excited because Ezzy’s experience with riding her favorite horse, Prince, has exceeded our wildest expectations…and we cannot wait to see what more she will do and learn with him”
– Hillary Savoie, mother
“It’s always such a pleasure dealing with your organization – you get things done and I love that.”
– Mike Schmidt, case worker EFNENY
“Thank you so much for your support. The families and I get so much comfort knowing you are there to help them when they need it most. Thanks for all you do, it makes such a difference in people’s lives”
– Kathleen Glastetter, case worked EFNENY
I was so excited last week when I opened the award letter from Jake’s Help from Heaven. I really can’t even begin to explain how helpful this is going to be to me personally, it will allow me the flexibility to take Coco on solo outings without my husband and have her safely secure and not worry about her running off.

Our 3rd Annual Finest Fillies surpassed all of our expectations, raising almost $20,000! We are so grateful for all our fillies and trainers who participated in our fun game as well as the community that came out to support! Thank you all so very much!
