VOLUNTEER OF THE WEEK
Kim Bishop
CORRAL

  

Horses and healing may not seem to go together, but Kim Bishop knows that they do. As a volunteer with CORRAL, a Christian nonprofit that pairs rescued horses with girls in high-risk situations, Kim splits her time between horses and computers. She’s a riding instructor and horse exerciser and head of the Feeder Subcommittee, and she’s also the sole IT tech and webmaster, keeping computers and software updated and maintaining the website. Camille Brown, the Program Manager, notes that although Kim had never worked with horses before volunteering at CORRAL, she was determined to help. She says: “Our organization's mission is to help hurting girls in the Triangle. Without Kim Bishop this would not be possible. Eighty percent of our girls have experienced trauma; 100% of our girls love Kim.”

and your devotion to this great program!
