Be a part of the SMILES mission.

How can you help?

At SMILES Inc., we're committed to helping our clients reach their goals. Whether the goal is social, emotional, physical, or personal, their individual goals are important to us. With your contribution of a donation, sponsor, or volunteer, you can help continue our mission!


Support our clients and horses.

Help the Sherry Monty Scholarship Fund. SMILES strives to turn no one away by providing services to clients with financial needs.

Donate/Lease a Horse

In order to provide the best therapeutic sessions for our clients, the horses must be sound, healthy, and have a calm and patient demeanor.

Sponsor a Horse

Your partnership is needed to help us care for our herd. Annual Sponsorships are $1,500.


A gift to SMILES can be a courageous and comforting act for someone who has experienced great loss. A gift to SMILES can also be a gesture of pride and recognition for someone deserving.


Do you have something you would like to donate that we might be able to use? Call us and ask!

We accept donations of tack, items that would make good silent auction baskets, woven baskets, and more!

Drop-Off: Monday - Friday, 8AM-4PM
