St. Francis is a great organization that focuses on persons with disabilities. My daughter has the most wonderful service dog Hope. Hannah (my daughter) is in a wheelchair and was getting ready to go to college. We applied for a dog to go with her. Their process was wonderful and training the best! After months of working with the trainers they matched Hope and Hannah. What a great pair. Knowing Hannah would be living in a dorm room for 4 year with a dog they decided Hope was a good size for a dorm room. Now Hannah and Hope have graduated college and now living and working in Arlington VA. Hope is such a great asset to Hannah making her life a much easier place. Trainers are available whenever needed and the support the St. Francis staff gives is like no other.
