About North Star Foundation
At North Star, the clients are children whose challenges range from autism to serious medical conditions to grief over the loss of a parent. All these children have family members who are similarly affected and whose needs are factored into their services.
Traditionally, Assistance Dog were highly trained to mitigate a specific disability (i.e., seeing eye or wheel-chair work) for predominantly adult clients, with very little preliminary or follow up contact. At North Star, they are focused on children.
North Star Foundation believes their nonprofit status is at the very heart of their endeavor. Many families with children who face special challenges are struggling both financially and emotionally to provide for them. North Star dogs are placed with families based upon a sliding scale when funds are available to mitigate their disability or ease the pain associated with a trauma or a loss.
Your money can help a child who faces a challenge to meet his or her social, emotional and educational needs. All donations are tax deductible as well as greatly appreciated.
