We have BIG news! For the second year, Paws & Think is a finalist for Impact 100 Greater Indianapolis. This year, our proposal is for our Paws to Comfort Program-Mental Health Initiative. If chosen as the final winner, we will be able to serve 3200 individuals in our community by providing the unconditional love and support of therapy dogs.
This includes providing trained, evaluated, and registered therapy dogs to:
- Children who have experienced child abuse and are receiving help from Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital Child Abuse Pediatric Department and undergoing forensic interviews at Susie’s Place Child Advocacy Centers
- Children who are experiencing grief from the loss of a loved one through Brooke’s Place and Camp Healing Tree
- Individuals experiencing crisis who require our Crisis Response Teams
- Healthcare workers and support staff who help these populations
Now more than ever, our support is needed. We are so thankful to Impact 100 for selecting us as a finalist. We wish our congrats to all the other finalists.
