Project New Hope:
To provide military families with professional counseling and education to assist with the stresses related to combat. These workshops are offered at no cost to servicemen and servicewomen who are experiencing traumatic stress from combat. Spouses, children, and significant others are encouraged to attend the workshops.
Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) and Lions have a long history of supporting guide dogs and the people who need them.
Founded by three Detroit-area Lions Clubs members in 1939, Leader Dogs for the Blind empowers people who are blind, visually impaired or deaf-blind with skills for a lifetime of independent travel, opening doors that may seem to have closed with the loss of sight. Leader Dog programs are crafted to address individual situations and adapt to clients’ changing needs at any point in their lives. Leader Dog’s programs give people the confidence and skills they need to live independent lives. Leader Dogs places approximately 200 dog/client teams every year.
The Lions of Multiple District 11-A2 recently received a Standard grant from LCIF to help Leader Dogs improve their facilities. The US$100,000 grant will support renovation and construction in the training bay area.
