The mission of Ohana Preservation Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is to preserve land, promote the therapeutic nature of horses, and to support community programs through the Aldie Conservation Fund, Dropping the Reins Initiative, and The Jubinsky Fund.
The Ohana Preservation Foundation believes that healing can take place when we reconnect to our land by preserving its history, conserving rural farmlands and saving it from over-development. We also believe in the healing power of horses who non-judgmentally show us how to care for ourselves and each other. Through our extensive equine and horticultural therapy programs, vulnerable children and their caregivers experience a feeling of well-being, improved physical and mental health and are encouraged to connect with others who carry similar challenges.
OPF/The Jubinsky Fund continues the legacy of John and Tess Jubinsky by sharing Ohana Equestrian Preserve with the community, establishing and promoting programs for children, caregivers, and supporting the mission of the Ohana Preservation Foundation.
Dropping the Reins Initiative educates and allows people to experience the healing qualities and gentleness of horses through wellness programs and events.
Aldie Conservation Fund conserves and protects the rural landscape, historic properties and farmland in Aldie and the surrounding area through education, financial, and technical assistance.
In Hawaiian culture, “ohana” translates to family. The “ohana” concept carries with it a certain responsibility, an obligation to take care of those in your community as they take care of you.
