You Can Help

Did you know that more than 15 % of our population is considered disabled? Think what it would mean to live with the boundaries of your life defined by a wheelchair. Imagine the challenges faced by parents raising a child with special needs. Consider the loneliness of a life lived indoors, shut off from the healing power of nature.

These underserved members of our community need and deserve outdoor recreation, open space access, as well as therapeutic and educational opportunities relating to nature. Please help to support our mission, enriching the lives of people with disabilities and other underserved members of our community.

Your sponsorship, donation, membership or participation as a volunteer will enable ACCESS ADVENTURE to sustain and expand the needed services that we provide in our community. Please contact us for information about planned giving/trust. Your support is vital to our success. With your help, we can continue our exciting and inspirational work, staffed entirely by volunteers.

Your donation could enable people with disabilities to attend an ACCESS ADVENTURE wilderness camping experience, fund travel for ACCESS ADVENTURE programs throughout the San Francisco Bay area and beyond, provide free Equine Facilitated Therapy to people with disabilities and fund our horses’ basic needs including feed, farrier, training and veterinary services.

Please make your tax-deductible donation to: ACCESS ADVENTURE, P. O. Box 2852, Fairfield, CA 94533-0285. Donation Brochure or donate through PayPal by clicking button.

The third Saturday of the month (April – October) is Open House at Rush Ranch, a good day to take a carriage ride and learn more about our programs.

Volunteers with equestrian experience groom, tack, train, and feed our horses. Using Carriage Association of America protocols and Certified Instructors, we train interested volunteers to drive our horses and serve our participants. Volunteers help with general repairs, improvements and maintenance of our Rush Ranch headquarters.

Youth Interns and special needs students work with adult volunteers to learn how to assist people with disabilities. Under supervision, they develop important life skills and learn to care for and drive our horses.

ACCESS ADVENTURE needs volunteers with teaching, administrative, fundraising, grant writing, creative writing, graphic design, and computer skills. Mechanics, truck drivers, electricians, and carpenters are valuable additions to our volunteer staff. Volunteer Brochure
