Horse Shelter Built by Fond du Lac High School Students
Eden, Wis – Mahala’s Hope, a non-profit organization that provides alternative treatment options, partnered with the Fond du Lac High School Building Construction class and Drexel Building Supply to build a 12’x 20’ run in shelter. This shelter provides protection from the elements for the hard working horses at Mahala’s Hope and shade to help them stay cool in the summer.
Mahala’s Hope is in the process of opening its recovery residence on a working farm for individuals who have completed primary treatment, women’s aftercare groups and various equine experiential learning groups. This farm site includes a herd of four horses which residents will assist in caring for and learning valuable skills.
The Fond du Lac High School Building Class was led by Vern Widmer and took the spring 2016 semester to complete. All materials for the building were generously donated and delivered by Drexel Building Supply. Upon completion of the run in shelter, Whealon Towing transported the building to the sight located in Eden.
Opportunities for sponsorship are still available including: furnishing the library, the art studio, additional home furnishings, equine supplies and sponsor a horse program that will cover the costs of equine care. There are several volunteer opportunities available currently and position openings.
