Challenge

Autism affects 1 in 91 children in the usa. Individuals with autism are twice as likely to face an accidental death and the number one cause of death is autism-related wandering. These individuals also have lack of social skills, communication and safety are primary concerns. We are seeking to make a difference in these peoples lives by providing them with autism service dogs.

Solution

Blessings Unleashed Foundation, Inc. is a unique 501c3 nonprofit organization that is committed to enriching the lives of individuals with autism by training and placing highly skilled service dogs that promote independent living. We accomplish this by properly training select rescue dogs for their future individualized tasks and educating recipients to utilize and care for their assistance dogs.
Training rescue dogs for children with autism, enrich the lives of individuals with autism by placing dogs in homes,promoting safety and independence for children with autism.

Long-Term Impact

Academic assistance, service dogs increase the students attention and ability to focus on task. The child feels a sense of security having their service dog with them in over stimulating and stressful environments the dog allows for the opportunity to engage in social interaction with peers, reduce shelter over crowding and euthanization. Relieve some of the stress of families that are living with autism and allow the person affected to have a sencse of compassion and independence.
