Human-Animal Interaction

nCHAI is aligned with the mission of the Human Animal Life Foundation (HALF) which focuses on interactions of humans with animals in a natural environment for the benefit of both. nCHAI offers HAI Sessions which administer a therapeutic medium to support the behavioral wellness of children, adults and families. The facilities provide a nature-based environment on dozens of acres, with fields, groves and ponds, for people to interact with many different domestic animals and various wildlife. The methodologies used begin with basics, to teach each person how to properly interact with animals, how to provide proper care for animals, as well as the environment, which develops real life skills focusing on empathy, trust and nurturing. Being in the nature-centered environment also teaches about conservation and sustainability, farming, work ethic and responsibility. These teachings advocate a natural progression of positive behaviors from people who are in turn taught to apply what they have learned to their own relationships with others, and just as importantly, to themselves as building blocks to self-esteem, self-worth, self-discipline, and self-respect.

Miracle Ranch Group Home for Children

Miracle Ranch Group Home for Children is a Faith-Based residential care which operates in a therapeutic nature-centered environment to promote Human-Animal Interaction (HAI) with a goal to make a substantial impact on the integration of animals into people's lives where the quality of life for both is improved and sustained. Through this interaction on a daily basis, as a model for living, our program is designed to emotionally and psychologically bond each child to the animals who require as much unconditional love, understanding and acceptance as they do. Being in this nature-centered environment also avails the children to learning conservation and sustainable ranching and farming skills, as well as providing a solid foundation of work ethic and responsibility in preparation for adulthood. These Faith-Based teachings promote positive behaviors from the children who are in turn taught to apply what they have learned to their relationships with other people and just as importantly to themselves as building blocks to self-esteem, self-worth, self disciple and self-respect. Ages 5 to 12. Short Term, School Term. Long Term. Emergencies, Crisis Interventions Respite.
