Warrior Canine Connection
Warrior Canine Connection Court Program
With a Fall 2016 grant from the Bob Woodruff Foundation, Warrior Canine Connection (WCC) developed a community-service-based diversionary sentence option for veterans whose service-connected injuries contributed to their involvement in the criminal justice system. The Warrior Canine Connection Court Program will be a service option available to veterans who receive a judicial sentence to perform community service. Those veterans will train dogs to subsequently serve physically-disabled veterans. The Spring 2017 Bob Woodruff Foundation grant will implement the Warrior Canine Connection Court Program at the San Mateo County and Santa Clara County Veteran Treatment Courts in California.
