Bring SMILES To Those You Love

SMILES transcends traditional therapeutic methods by offering individuals with special needs, of all ages, the joy of participating in an equine assisted program which provides social, emotional, physical, and personal rewards.

"The self-esteem he’s gained from this program cannot be measured by any of us with 'normal' mobility. He’s in control and becomes a part of this beautiful animal's mobility."

Vicki Cleland

Share Your Heart!

When you play the Canal Street Bingo game at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino now through Dec. 12, you’re helping raise funds for area children’s charities, giving them the gift of a promising future. Half of each $3 or $7 Canal Street Bingo game purchased goes to the Heart of Canal Street fund, which totaled more than $1.1 million last year! SMILES is excited to be in the running to be a benefiting charity. Visit paysbig.com/heart to learn more.
