GCI improves the physical, emotional, and social health of children by providing animal therapy and makes life more fulfilling and independent for children and adults with physical disabilities by providing trained assistance dogs. GCI does not charge for any of its services. Each service dog receives two years of training, learns over 80 commands, and is then given away at absolutely no cost (including a lifetime of instructional support).
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit GCI is a small, grassroots charity doing big things. Each year, GCI reaches thousands of children through its canine reading programs, which have improved literacy skills; canine visitations to schools, nursing homes, and rehabilitation centers; and educational programs including disability awareness and spinal cord injury prevention presentations. GCI has increased the independence of people of all ages (11-65) with various medical conditions (cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, seizure disorders, and autism) by providing trained service dogs to assist with daily living activities (opening doors, turning on lights, retrieving dropped or needed items, and pulling wheelchairs).
