Leading Life with Greater Independence

“I don’t think I could have gotten any luckier than to be matched with Hogan,” shares Emmanuel Jenkins. “He’s not only smart, but he’s patient. He knows it takes me time. We are doing as well as we can with the pandemic.”

Born and raised in Delaware, Emmanuel is living his dream life despite the pandemic. He has a loving family. He loves his job as the community resource officer for the State of Delaware Developmental Disabilities Council, and last year, another dream came true when he was matched with Service Dog Hogan. “Hogan is one of a kind,” says Emmanuel.

As part of his daily responsibilities, Emmanuel is in charge of social media and public relations outreach for the Delaware DDC, helping people with disabilities find programs and resources that are available to them. “I’m always fighting for the rights of all people, and I’m thankful to everyone at Canine Companions who strongly believes in what they are doing.”
