Episode 17 - EPIC Outreach
On this week's episode of the Sanctuary Life Podcast, we dive into the heartwarming world of EPIC Outreach, a remarkable nonprofit organization based in Jacksonville, Florida. Founded by Jessie Miller in 2015, EPIC Outreach is on a mission to make the world a kinder place for both people and animals.
Discover how in 2019 EPIC Outreach expanded by transforming a 7-acre property into a farm sanctuary, providing a safe haven for a diverse range of rescued animals, from horses and donkeys to dogs, cats, chickens, pigs, bunnies, and Guinea pigs. These animals, once facing uncertain futures, have become ambassadors of kindness, sharing their incredible rescue stories to inspire compassion and empathy.
Journey with us as we explore Jessie Miller's inspiring path into animal rescue and education, driven by a powerful moment in her youth. Learn how storytelling lies at the heart of EPIC Outreach's mission, challenging stereotypes and nurturing empathy by connecting people with the animals through compelling narratives.
EPIC Outreach engages the community in various ways, from interactive sanctuary tours that allow visitors to meet the animals in person to the creation of educational children's books authored and illustrated by Jessie Miller. These books impart valuable lessons about adoption, compassion, and the unique needs of animals, aiming to cultivate kindness in young minds.
But that's not all—EPIC Outreach goes beyond the sanctuary gates, bringing animals into schools to teach children the importance of compassion and care. Tune in to hear how their humane education outreach programs, featuring powerful stories like "Chance's Story," "Oliver's Big Problem," and "Winnie's Tale," have had a profound impact on shifting mindsets and inspiring positive change.
Join us on this heartwarming journey of transformation, compassion, and the power of storytelling as we explore the incredible work of EPIC Outreach. Don't miss this episode of the Sanctuary Life Podcast, where kindness knows no bounds!
