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.

We support the Washington Traffic Safety Commission. The goal of the WTSC is to reduce fatalities and injuries in Washington State. Each county has a Target Zero Task Force working to reduce traffic collision fatalities to zero by 2030.
