Coming 2022

Tiny House Project

We work with youth and young adults who have experienced hardship in life.

From grandparents raising children who are experiencing generational issues to working with veterans (and other affiliations) with PTSD; or working with anyone with life issues.

Please note these are not in operation and are in the developmental stages. Contact  us for more information or updates. Research has been done to include building plans, materials lists, and costs for small models. These items can be shared with anyone interested.

Come Get Involved

The Tiny House Project has risen out of the Farm’s desire to further help the people who have “aged out” of government services, people that have not been sufficiently taught to work, have proper life skills, or to sustain themselves. Those that will be living in these tiny houses should also be able, at some point, be a part of the building process so as to inspire and teach.

 

Hochoka’s main program is Healing With Horses. This program encompasses many facets of working with humans, such as

  • Fear

  • Anger

  • Conflict

  • Conflict resolution

  • Emotional intelligence

  • Wellness and prevention

  • Stress management strategies

  • Relaxation techniques

 

The horse modality is NOT therapeutic riding. This program is curriculum-based and produces behavioral modifications.

The Healing With Horses program works well because the horses gain the trust and empower the human, creating a love bond that was broken previously. The natural environment works well because most of these people live in a box – a schoolroom, their bedroom, television, computer or electronic game “box”. In nature, they gain a sense of freedom, something they have rarely felt. Their growth occurs outside the “box”.
