Our Initiatives

cj3 service dogs

The CJ3 Foundation provides certified, trained, service dogs of the highest quality at no cost to disabled American Heroes in order to help restore their physical and emotional independence, thereby empowering these wounded men/women to return to life with dignity and independence. The CJ3 Foundation works with Jessiffany Canine Services, LLC, a phenomenal partner that specializes in the sourcing and training of social, imported, highly trained service dogs from Europe, importing the world's best German Shepherds, Dutch Shepherds, and Malinois that are selected and trained to meet the specific needs of each of our recipients. The service dogs directly enable our recipients to overcome physical and/or mental impairments that substantially limits one or more major life activities. Our service dog recipients are ultimately able to return to their communities with a new “leash” on life as productive citizens who make a positive difference.

CJ3 mental health & welness

The CJ3 Foundation provides mental health and wellness services at no cost to the disabled American Heroes we support through intensive therapy sessions with a licensed clinical Psychologist. The CJ3 Foundation works with Dr. Rebecca A. Thomas, PsyD, a compassionate, professional, and wonderful partner who has been working towards a holistic and integrative approach for many years. The only way to achieve optimal health is to address the whole system; mind, body, and spirit. We are not making claims that we will ‘fix him/her’ or ‘heal him/her’. What we are offering are some essential tools that will get the recipients on the road toward wholeness and recovery. We are providing the recipients with additional “tools for their toolbox”; additional “gear for their rucksacks”!

cj3 advocacy

The CJ3 Foundation provides advocacy services at no cost to the disabled American Heroes we support. This activity consists of CJ3 Foundation's efforts to influence changes in policy and legislation that adversely effects our United States Military Service Member, Veteran/Disabled Veteran, Law Enforcement, and Emergency/First Responder brothers and sisters. The CJ3 Foundation provides a forum to formalize our advocacy efforts for these groups on issues of concern; whether it is a policy change or legislative change required. The CJ3 Foundation builds upon this by engaging legislators and their staff to advocate for changes in policy and legislation that adversely effects our constituents. On a smaller level, but no less important, the CJ3 Foundation advocates on behalf of our recipients to receive assistance they need/require. This advocacy centers on providing recipients with referrals for services or support to other organizations/agencies established to adequately address/help with specific recipient issues.
