Description: Operation Full Circle - Free of Charge
Operation Full Circle (OFC) is for veterans with post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, and/or a physical disability. Participants are required to attend one class per week for 16 consecutive weeks at the FSD facility in Englewood, Colorado.
FSD helps veterans and active-duty military find a new level of confidence and independence with the help of specially trained service dogs.
Operation Freedom was developed to help returning war veterans and military personnel transition from active duty and combat to civilian life. Many military personnel and veterans face challenges like PTSD, depression, immobility, and inactivity, sometimes resulting in destructive consequences, including homelessness, crime, drugs, alcohol, and even suicide.
Operation Freedom works alongside the services of local VA medical centers, community groups, and on-base transition programs to combat these challenges using highly specialized service dogs that give veterans independence and confidence. Our service dogs can help veterans with a multitude of everyday tasks, like picking up dropped items and mobility assistance, as well as mental and emotional support.
