OUR MISSION

The mission of the Samantha Rocha Dyer (SRD) Foundation Straightening Reins is to improve teen and adolescent mental health and well-being through experiential learning, self-discovery, and modeling positive choices. Using equine-assisted therapeutic programs we provide tools and support that address the emotional challenges facing our youth. With an emphasis on reducing teen suicide, SRD Straightening Reins is a resource for youth, families, schools, and the community at large. Our programs promote recovery and resiliency by actively addressing behavioral/emotional problems, substance abuse, violence, child abuse, and communication issues.

OUR VISION

SRD Ranch strives to offer adolescents and teens a safe, outdoor, supervised environment where they can learn and improve social coping skills.

We have made a commitment to ensure high-quality services and care by effectively supporting our team of professionals, conscientiously managing our financial resources, and producing positive outcomes through evidence-based practices. We will demonstrate the power of positive choices and assist people in accepting responsibility for their personal mental well-being. We will serve as leaders in the effort to change the narrative about mental health and provide support for our youth and their families during challenging times.

Straightening Reins’ Board of Directors works year-round raising funds to offer opportunities for local youth of families dealing with economic hardships to participate in these programs.
