O.K. Corral Coming to Marshalltown

(Marshalltown, IA) The O.K. Corral is coming to Marshalltown, Iowa to present its equine-assisted certification to the public July 25th, 26th and 27th. The seminar will be hosted by Quakerdale Family Services/Wolfe Ranch (located on Highway 30 outside Marshalltown), and runs from 8-5 each day.

For over 20 years, Greg Kersten, President of the O.K. Corral Series and Founder of the field of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP), has been certifying therapists and regular, everyday people to use horses in the fields of mental health and wellness. The seminar encourages attendees to look beyond horsemanship, irrational fears and their own biases by promoting the use of astute observation, nonverbal communication and good old common sense. The seminar also provides fun and insightful equine-assisted activities that can help to “Make Every Day O.K.” in the lives of participants, or even start them on a new career path! What does it cost to be certified by the O.K. Corral? Lunches and materials are included in the price of $1,075 for the three-day event. Continue reading “O.K. Corral Coming to Marshalltown”

Quakerdale Family Services to Launch “So That All May Be Served” Fundraising Campaign

(Marshalltown, IA) – “So That All May Be Served” is the theme for Quakerdale Family Services’ 2019 Hope Fund fundraising campaign. The event will kick off on Wednesday, December 5 and conclude at midnight on Monday, December 31. The goal is to raise $5,000 to help provide supplemental funding for families who cannot afford the services they need.

Quakerdale Family Services’ mission is to encourage “… hope, faith, and growth in the families and communities we serve.” Unfortunately, there are times when families needing assistance do not have the resources necessary to pay for services.

We have established the Hope Fund

The Hope Fund provides funding for qualified families to help supplement their ability to pay in part or in whole. The following are ways you can get involved and make a difference in the lives of those needing a helping hand toward healing. Continue reading ““So That All May Be Served” Fundraising Campaign”
