Mission Statement

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

1. Interactive traffic safety safety presentations at high schools.

2. Drug and alcohol presentations at high schools.

3. We have a registered therapy dog named Stella. Stella visits children at elementary and middle schools to facilitate reading programs. Her participation is a boost to their self-confidence and socialization, which improves their reading ability. Stella also goes to hospice and hospitals to cheer up patients, visitors and staff.

We reached 12,000 people this year.
