Our main program is the four-week summer session which concludes at the Sarpy County Fair with our True Buddy Sheep Show. True Buddy-Luv A Lamb pairs special needs or medically challenged children and adults with a youth volunteer and a sheep. This gives volunteer youth the opportunity to work with special needs individuals and to participate in community service projects. In turn, it is providing occupational and physical therapy to children and adults with special needs or medical challenges through the interactions with our sheep. Physical therapy, communication and response come naturally when our True Buddies walk a sheep.
That might all sound very clinical, but if you ever attended one of our True Buddy – Luv A Lamb sessions you might just find… a lot of sheep play involving water hoses, soap suds, water-filled boots, tiaras, feather boas, bandanas, obstacle courses, basketball hoops, laughing kids, friendship, and a place where “everyone knows your name”.
|Do you know a child or adult with special needs who would benefit from this program?
We want more True Buddies to share our experiences and sheep and we want to touch the lives of people of all abilities.
