A Fair Shake for Youth, Inc. (AFSY)
New York City

The $7,500 PDF grant will help this New York City-based non-profit youth-serving organization continue to demonstrate the efficacy of using therapy dogs to help vulnerable, underserved young people develop and expand their lives. By partnering with at least twelve schools and youth service organizations during the 2013-2014 school year, the program will reach a minimum of 200 young people through 10 to 12 weekly program cycles. This small program with a big reach is successfully “offering a helping paw to improve the lives of young New Yorkers.”
