Thank you for your support to the women and children of Make Life Better Together, your partnership will create HOPE, HELP and Happiness.  The impact of your donations will help provide hope, by giving women and children coming out of domestic violence a 2 year residential program to help provide a safe residence, healing, growth, and transformation. 

We work using several different modalities but most importantly is the three step approach in healing and understanding theology, brain & nutrition therapy and equine therapy giving each person a better understanding in who they are and how they are relating to the world and others.  This gives our professionals direct ways to provide them with toolboxes that they can use for a lifetime.  

Our mission here is to provide a safe refuge for women and children, especially the at risk and foster children who are suffering the crisis of domestic violence and abusive homes.  Our two year residential program will offer a new beginning for each person.  On this 80 acre ranch they will learn skill traits, leadership, team work, computer literacy, financial literacy, budgeting, cooking, team building, agriculture, self-sustaining food sources, non-violent communication, listening skills, and critical thinking, and philosophy/theology from reading, education and discussions.  The horses are also part of the therapeutic team here and we have seen the successes of equine therapy in healing those with trauma.  All our experts will be Eagala certified.  We meet our residents’ physical needs by providing housing and food for the duration of the program, as well as medical and dental care.   

These women have been abused, neglected, and traumatized, and they do not need another welfare program.  Particularly at risk for poor mental and physical health, drug and alcohol abuse, and suicide.  How much longer are we going to curse and condemn. They need to be nurtured, guided, given a safe space to learn how to become well balanced individuals, in mind, body, soul, and spirit...and to create a life that is honorable for them, others, and the planet.  These once, abused women and children, are now properly prepared to take the helm and live a life they never thought possible for themselves and families.
