At Changing Rein, they know that connecting with a horse requires learning the relationship skills we all need to be successful in life. Grooming, leading and interactive activities on the ground teach students how to partner with their horses. But first, there must be a sense of mutual trust for both parties to feel safe. They show their students to be aware of how sensitive horses are to our energy and our body language. At CREAAT, their focus has shifted more toward supporting children and teens who have faced challenging starts in life and on-going difficulties and adults with mental health needs.

My Sister's Pantry
Since opening its doors to the community in 1999, My Sister’s Pantry has become one of the busiest food banks in the Tacoma area. The Pantry serves an average of 350 families per month and annually distributes approximately 125,000 pounds of food. Open three times a month, the caring food bank also provides substantial hot meal, served on tablecloths with metal cutlery and china. Fall and winter months are colder, wetter, holiday laden and, for many, depressing. The Pantry becomes a haven for fellowship, warmth and caring. Evening and Saturday openings mean minimum-wage-earning families can come without disrupting their work schedules.
