I loved this group of kids - they showed me an eagerness to help anyone in need that gave me great faith in the positive contributions they would make as adults.
I brought in people who spoke about the Mayor's Voluntary Action Center, the Foundling Hospital, Red Cross, police station, and many other organizations. However, when I asked Carmen whether we could bring in service dogs, she told me absolutely not, no way, no, no, no. So I did not pursue the matter, but I did research on the policy of the Department of Education on the presence of service dogs in public schools, and there was nothing that I could find.
I wonder what children who needed their service animals did? Stayed home?
