Review for 1Boy4Change, Inc., Morriston, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I recently met Chris Carswell in person after having worked with his foundation for about a year. I run a foundation that provides grants to the disabled in our community who need service dogs. Chris and his foundation reviewed our grantee's application and selected a specific dog to be trained for her.

Chris provided the early training for this dog, before was moved on to get his advanced training in Tennessee. All through this process, Chris and his foundation provided the communication, reassurance and information we needed to prepare our client for their new dog.

The end result of this labor of love on Chris' part is the most amazing partnership between a highly trained service dog, and a 7 year old girl with severe disabilities.

I credit Christopher for his dedication to this work, and for his work helping Police K-9 units across the country. What an amazing young man, to have had this idea at such a young age, and to spend his teen years serving others.

He is truly a remarkable young man. His foundation is well-run, and clearly he goes out of his way to make sure that the projects he supports are successful. He, his mother and the trainer from Tennessee gave up an entire week of their summer to come to our community and train our client with their new service dog. I don't know of another organization in this area of service that does this for their clients. I know that hundreds of hours of training were donated toward the preparation of this wonderful dog.

We had a million questions. Every single one of them was answered politely and with patience, understanding that this was all new to us. Chris's team is highly skilled and highly qualified to be doing this work, and I consider them experts in the field.

Chris knows firsthand the difference that a trained service dog can make in a person's life, and he appears to be truly dedicated to making it possible for others to have the same benefit.

Wonderful young man, and a great example of what a great non-profit should be!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Double their funding so they can help even more people.
