Project HEAL© is a program offered by ECAD. The program honors and empowers Wounded Warriors by providing specially trained Service Dogs to increase independence and make a difference in their lives. Our Project HEAL© Service Dogs are individually trained by at-risk teens in our ECADemy© program. These specially trained dogs pick up dropped objects, open and close doors, open refrigerators, pull wheelchairs, prevent overcrowding in public, interrupt nightmares and flashbacks, remind to take meds, warn of approaching strangers and reduce anxiety and stress, all the while providing unconditional love and comfort. ECAD does not charge our Wounded Warriors for these very special Service Dogs. Each veteran is provided with 13 days of Team Training instruction in our Dobbs Ferry, NY facility. Housing is provided at no cost. Veterans must pay for their own transportation to our facility as well as meals and activity costs during Team Training. Through our visits to West Point and the Bronx VA Hospital we've become more aware of veterans' needs and expanded on our knowledge of how a Service Dog can help a veteran. ECAD's Therapy Dog, Blip, has been participating in TBI groups at the VA hospital. We've also invited veterans to come to Childrens Village to act as mentors to the boys and participate in Service Dog training classes.
