We have a new home location in Chesterfield! We will continue to provide services in Louisa, but having our own farm will allow up to serve clients from Chesterfield, metro-Richmond, and the tri-city area. To help us with this exciting expansion, we are looking for support to build fencing and prepare our pastures through financial support. You can also support us through donating materials, and other goods that will be helpful when we serve clients. To learn more, contact us through the information at the bottom of this page or fill out the fields on the “Contact Us” page!

You or your business can be featured as one of our superstar supporters! The businesses below sponsored sections of our fence!
Without the support of friends like you, we couldn’t do the amazing work we do. The businesses below, literally made it possible for #emPOWERChesterfield to move into our new location!
Currently, our volunteer needs are primarily related to pasture maintenance and helping us to create the vision of a safe place for our clients. Please note that because our four legged partners are owned by individuals and are not owned by the organization, we have very limited opportunities for horse involvement. Their human counterparts are responsible for their care, but we appreciate your interest in helping our equine team members! Due to the sensitive and confidential nature of our services, we are not able to have volunteers participate in sessions. We would LOVE to have you help us with the following tasks:
painting our new fencing, pending paint donations
representing emPOWER at tables to spread word about the organization and ask for donations
maintenance in and around pasture, including weed whacking, pulling weeds, clearing manure, maintaining manure pile
building clean-out and prep for hay barn
Please fill out a form on the “CONTACT PAGE” if you are interested in the above activities. As always, a huge help is to like our Facebook page and share out organization with friends! If you know people that may be interested in becoming a donor or volunteering for the above activities, please pass them my way ASAP!
