SAN MARTIN, Calif. - Jan. 26, 2015 - PRLog -- Learning Services is a national provider of specialized rehabilitation services for adults with acquired brain injuries. Included in each person’s rehabilitation program is therapy focused on community integration and work skill development. In the Gilroy program, these community programs include working with a local non-profit Operation Freedom Paws.  The residents have the opportunity to work on several projects with Mary Cortani and her crew; including helping to clean the training barn, cleaning and preparing the learning center for classes, gardening and various other tasks.  In just the few weeks we have been there, residents have shown great pride in helping out this organization.  KayRee Shreeve, Program Manager for Learning Services said, “One resident who has chronic pain issues has now not complained of this pain for nearly two weeks and she volunteers at Operation Freedom Paws two to three days per week.  Another resident who is usually very resistant to work has actually expressed wanting to go more and is wiping down chairs despite his balance issues, and a third resident reports to us that despite being blind she loves going over there and finding her way around to help”.  Mary Cortani, founder of Operation Freedom Paws, is thrilled to have the Learning Services team on board, “They are hard workers and as the weeks progress I have seen more and more smiles from both their residents and our staff.  The happiness is contagious.”  This community program is the start of a great partnership between Learning Services and Operation Freedom Paws.

About Operation Freedom Paws

Operation Freedom Paws, a 501(c)3 Non-Profit, empowers veterans, adults and children with disabilities to live a quality life by teaching them to train their own dogs, and certifying them as service dog teams. The dogs, usually from rescue organizations or shelters, are carefully evaluated. Each is then matched to a specific client’s physical and psychological needs. There is no charge--all we ask is a commitment to complete the 48-week training program. OFP’s funding is provided by fundraising events, individual donations, grants from private foundations and their commercial kennel services (ie dog daycare and boarding).

To learn more about our program and services, visit our website www.operationfreedompaws.org or call 1-408-683-9010. For a tour of the center please schedule an appointment with Kim Burgess, Kennel Manager.
