Mission Statement

Our primary mission is human development in the States of Oregon and Washington. We do that in two ways:

1. We give presentations at high schools on teen driver safety, rail safety and drugs/alcohol/DUI.

2. We have a registered therapy dog named Stella. Stella visits schools, nursing homes and hospitals to cheer up children, patients, visitors and staff.

We reached 12,000 people last year.
