Canine Companions Awarded GoodUse Grant for Efficiency Upgrades

GoodUse logo

The Canine Companions Southeast Region was selected by Southface Institute to receive a $60,000 check through their GoodUse grant program. Southface Institute, whose mission is to promote sustainable homes, workplaces, and communities through education, research, advocacy and technical assistance, selected Canine Companions from a diverse pool of qualified nonprofits to receive this grant.

Through the GoodUse grant, which helps nonprofits reduce utility costs and reinvest savings into core community services, the Southeast Region will allocate the funds towards replacing their Kennel and Training Building roofs and installing r-21 spray foam insulation. The addition of insulation will assist the campus in becoming more energy efficient, supporting environmental sustainability and resource efficiency while saving mission-critical funds. The upgrades will also make Southeast Region’s facilities more comfortable for the training staff and service dogs to work on skills that can be transformative to people with disabilities.
