Healing Companions, Inc. is proud to say that over the months and years since 2001 we have done hundreds of events in an effort to educate the public about the possibilities of Psychiatric Service Dogs in treating people with mental illness. Feel free to browse some of our previous events. If you do not see an upcoming event here, that does not mean we are not working on our next one!

Fair Housing Resource Center first Annual Fair

Healing Companions is excited to be joining the Fair Housing Resource Center, Inc. for their 1st annual fair.

Fair Housing vendor of the day paws for a cause

 

The Fair Housing Resource Center is a non-profit advocacy organization that serves Northeast Ohio.  “Paws for a Cause” is intended to help bring awareness to Service Animals and Therapy Assistance animals and those who use them.  As an advocacy organization FHRC helps clients with reasonable accommodation requests in housing to help them have/keep their assistance animal.

FHRC’s hope in holding this event is to help counteract discriminatory attitudes toward people with disabilities and help demystify those people with disabilities who rely on the services of their animals.  

It should be a fun day and we are hoping all of you will join us at Wes Point Park in downtown Willoughby.
