Service Dogs for Warriors Program Reaches 42 Sponsored Dogs
The Ahepa Service Dogs for Warriors program continues to
experience success in its fundraising efforts to help veterans
end the tragedy of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Due to
PTSD, 22 veterans every single day die by suicide.
In just four years since the program's inception, $630,000
has been raised leading to the sponsorship of 42 service dogs.
In addition, the program has $30,000 in cash and pledges to
sponsor three additional service dogs. (The program generates
no expenses. All funds go directly to the cost of training these
wonderful live-saving animals).
The response from the AHEPA family has been overwhelming as has the response from the community at-large.
In March, the committee had the honor to introduce the
AHEPA Service Dogs for Warriors program to His Eminence
Archbishop Elpidophoros of America at the Greek Orthodox
Archdiocese of America.
"We thank Archbishop Elpidophoros for accepting our
request to facilitate an introduction to the program, knowing
His Eminence's appreciation for canines," Supreme President
George Horiates said. "We are grateful and thrilled to have
received His Eminence's support for the program."

Program Vice Chairman Bob Fourniades, Veteran David Castro with
