Substitute Needed from 9/15/18 - 11/16/18
One of our ongoing volunteers at The Crossroads Center will be out of town for two months this fall and we are looking for a couple of teams that could fill in for them. If we can get 2 or 3 teams, then we can work the schedule to space visits out for the people filling in. They currently go to Crossroads on Monday afternoons from 3:00 - 4:00 pm (thanks Nan and Gus!). Nan says that they arrive around 2:50 pm and a staff member takes them to the area where the visit will be held. They hang out with the patients and Gus gets lots of love during the visit. Parking is free and the environment is very safe. A staff member is there at all times. Please let Pam Fox or Diana Dawson know if you can help us out for a couple of months. Contact Information

Volunteer Opportunities
Glendale Place, 779 Glendale Milford Road would like to have an additional team visit their facility on Friday. If you are interested, you can contact Darlene in their activity department at 513-771-1779. Mariann Moster and Cali are currently visiting on Wednesday and she was asked to reach out to see if we could find an additional team. Please let John Connor know if you are able to visit, or if you would like more information or to have him contact the facility.

The Crossroads Center is a mental health and addiction treatment center in Cincinnati that is interested in establishing a pet therapy program with Canines for Christ teams. Crossroads Center is located at 311 Martin Luther King Dr., East. Pam and Bill Fox and John Connor have met with their staff and toured their facility. We would like to find some teams that can visit. For additional information, please contact Bill or Pam (Contact Information). 

Central Parke Alzheimer's Special Care Center, 7495 Central Parker Blvd., Mason, OH 45240 has requested a team to make visits at their facility. Any day of the week works for them, but the best time is probably 10:00 am. I assume that visits could also be made on the weekend. If we get more than one team that has an interest, perhaps you could rotate weeks if unable to commit to weekly visits. Please contact John Connor (jconnortx@yahoo.com) if you are interested in visiting at this facility.
