Welcome to Life Unleashed | Summer 2022
We dedicated this issue to children, teens, and the dogs that become their best friends. When faced with vision loss or the loss of a parent in the military, young people can feel alone, anxious, and disconnected from their peers.
Happily, our dogs become loyal companions, ice breakers, friend-makers—and most of all—life changers. Whether paired with a guide dog, a Kids Companion Dog, or a Gold Star Family Dog, the young people we serve find security, confidence, love, and hope in these wagging tails and giant hearts.
From follower to leader: how a high school student found her confidence.
