We match highly trained guide dogs with visually impaired individuals, providing the gift of an independent lifestyle. Students train on our Palmetto, Florida campus for 20 days, venturing from our secluded Freedom Walk out to city streets, shopping malls, and public transportation. Most leave here with heads held high and a wider smile. Our students receive all of our dogs and our services at no cost, thanks to our generous partners. And our new Student Center, opened in 2016, provides beautiful accommodations and a nurturing, caring environment.
