Swayze Ranch

Max and his Eagle scout troop #888 handcrafted and dedicated two beautiful benches for Swayze Ranch! Max also came back and put up the numbers of our address! What a fine young man and his family! Very grateful!

These are beautiful hand made benches! 
We are also getting a plaque made by the Eagle Scouts. The plaque will say dedicated to Swayze Ranch and Charlene Swayze for all of the community service and animal therapy they provide.
Thank you scouts! 5/16/21

SRD Straightening Reins – July 2020

by Maria Strmsek | Jun 24, 2020 | Community

As Summer unfolds at the SRD Ranch and the quarantine is being lifted, clients and volunteers are slowly returning while adhering to the restrictions still in place. Ranch Crew teens enjoy helping with the SRD Therapy Herd and the animals are responding with love and excitement. The barn is being painted a cheery red and the chicken coop is almost complete with its addition of window flower boxes. The SRD school-site visitation program is being restructured to meet demands in the event that the junior and senior high schools don’t reopen in the fall.
During this COVID-19 crisis, not-for-profit foundations needed to realign their thinking about maintaining virtual communication with their clients and donors. New strategies post-quarantine, will force the foundations to think more collaboratively in order to continue their missions. SRD keeps reaching out to organizations with similar missions to provide that support and hopefully expand services.
SRD was visited by both Alex and Angela Padilla, their family and Charlene Swayze and her daughter during the Family Friendly Ranch Time program. Mrs. Padilla is the founder of FundaMental Change, an organization whose mission is to make a difference in the lives of those living with mental illness in underserved communities. Since its inception, she has continued to work tirelessly with her events to bring awareness to remove the stigma surrounding mental disorders. She was excited to witness the work that SRD has been doing with children and families who are suffering with their own mental health challenges utilizing the equine-assisted learning method.
Charlene Swayze and her husband, Don, started the Swayze Foundation as a commitment to provide scholarship opportunities in art, sports, equestrian and animal therapy to individuals with any and all types of disabilities. Their Foundation has partnered with multiple organizations to provide support and enhance their mission. Both families need to be applauded for their passion of service to others and it was an honor to have them visit SRD. We’re looking forward to working together in the future, please visit our website to see what we are all about: www.srdstraighteningreins.org

Taking care of our own!

This is from our ranch hand, Sebastian. He is moving to Florida for an internship! The Swayze Foundation is supporting him!

"Hey Charlene, just wanted to thank you and the Swayze Foundation for your kindness and all you've done for me these past months. Thanks for the lovely memories and the great hiking shoes you got me. I am honored to have been able to be a part of your farm and help your animals. I hope to come back soon and pick up where we left off. Thank you!"

THE SWAYZE FOUNDATION giving to help others!

Dear Charlene,
Thankful for the wonderful Aplaca Fur.
My Tom and I would like to see more Alpacas in Acton as part of a 10 acre farm that is permaculture based. Goal is to create organic, healthy food for ourselves as well as show others how they can do the same. My brother Tom is very active with Meals on Wheels, The Fire Department , Permaculture and a number of areas. He’s just a really great dude! The fur is going to be a gift for my brother as he wants Alpaca as well as many other animals to be part of his Acton Farm! Look forward to seeing you soon (Tom and I both). Thank you for all that you & Donny do and of course for Patrick! The 3 of you are bringing lots of love and joy!
