Helping Hands

The Woman’s Club of Fullerton is truly committed to making a significant difference in the lives of members of our community.  We are strong believers that to get more out of life, you must put more into the lives of others.  With that in mind, we are proud to serve our community in any way they have need.  From raising money and awareness to getting our hands dirty and helping a family in need, the WCOF looks for substantial ways we can be of service.    For more information on getting involved or submitting an opportunity for us to help in any way, contact the WCOF

WCOF Charity of the year Tara's Chance

Our Charity of the Year 2022-2024

Tara’s Chance Equine Therapy Program provides children with special needs the opportunity to
participate in a unique educational and therapeutic program designed specifically to help meet their physical, cognitive, behavioral and social needs through equine assisted activities and therapies. Children with autism, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), developmental delays, genetic syndromes, traumatic brain injuries,and other special needs have all benefited from the program.
Tara’s Chance serves 65 individuals with special needs through two programs and provides 1,718
hours of individualized equine therapy annually. Tara’s Chance serves individuals ages 3-37and 90%
of participants are between 6 and 17. Tara’s Chance is tasked with a growing waiting list of 46 individuals with special needs. This wait-list has grown 100% organically through word-of-mouth testaments of our program from parents to other families in the special needs community. Currently, the average wait to join our program is 10 months 15.
