This local charity is helping special needs children and adults through horseback riding
Beth and Fred Pellerito first met Mitch Albom on The Heart of Detroit in 2018, when they took over running O.A.T.S., a equine therapy organization for children and adults with special needs. Now Albom has checked back in with them to see how things are going since the pandemic began. They said that it has been a challenge just trying to start things up since they were initially able to reopen in June. The Pelleritos shared some of the inspirational stories of students who have seen drastic improvements from meeting with the horses every week. They said that even with the pandemic, its important that they are able to keep helping people as safely as they can.
