Project HEAL™

Project HEAL™:  Three interrelated programs designed to meet the needs of Veterans living with physical injuries, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

  • Transitions:  The Transitions Program teaches Veterans to educate Service Dogs to be placed with fellow Service Members. To help Veterans re-engage with civilian culture, ECAD partners them with the at-risk youth enrolled in the ECADemy™ Program. This extraordinary coupling reinforces a sense of solidarity and mentorship in the Veterans, while giving the at-risk youth a role model to help develop life skills such as patience, empathy and self-control.
  • Train the Trainer:  A unique opportunity for Veterans to work with certified instructors to learn how to start a career in the field of Service Dog education.
