Committed to the Cause

Since 1997, the vision and mission for a program like TOPASEF has been the dream, mission and vision that Sheri has been working toward one step at a time.  In December of 2017, we officially became a non profit with the Federal Government! Achieving that goal was momentous and a milestone since beginning the program with a rescued horse named Prince in 2007!

A special "Thank You" to our current Board Members for making it possible!

We have 2 openings available.

If you feel you are a good fit and would like to join our Board, feel free to contact us below!
