MILWAUKEE — Life for Glenn Perry hasn’t always been easy. After serving overseas in Vietnam, he found himself having a hard time adjusting back to day-to-day life.
MILWAUKEE – MKE Urban Stables, located on Lincoln off First Street, offers a little bit of nature in Milwaukee and a way for veterans, particularly those dealing with PTSD, to hopefully find some healing.
The benefits of equine therapy for Veterans, as well as their families, will be on display during “Prissy & PJ’s Private Party,” an open house event for Milwaukee Urban Stables.
Geared toward families, the free, fun event will be 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 3, at Milwaukee Urban Stables, 143 E. Lincoln Ave.
Meet the therapy side of this unique animal assisted therapy program in the heart of Milwaukee. Produced by World View Productions, for Very Local.
MCFI, an affiliate of Centers for Independence, and its Brain Health program travel to MKE Urban Stables each week to interact with the different animals housed at the stable. The participants walk with the animals, groom them and participate other activities.
