A key goal of the Road Home Foundation for Injured Warriors and Families is to make an immediate and lasting positive impact for injured warriors and/or their families. In keeping with this goal, the board of directors have authorized a grant in the amount of $7,500 for the purchase and training of a service canine.
The grant has been issued to Rebuilding Warriors, a not-for-profit organization that specializes in the selection and training of service canines.
Rebuilding Warriors will select a veteran, determine the veteran’s special needs and then train the canine to meet the needs of the veteran over the course of six to fifteen months. Once the canine can effectively meet the veteran’s needs, he or she will complete the training program along with the dog to ensure that the partnership is a lasting one.
Road Home Foundation for Injured Warriors and Families is honored to partner with Rebuilding Warriors to make an immediate and lasting impact on the life of an injured service member through this grant.
