At Project POOCH we are often amazed at the long term impact the program has had on the youth that we've served. Here is a letter recently sent to us from a former Project POOCH youth.
"I just wanted to say hi. I also wanted you to know that I am very happy to see that you have been able to keep Project POOCH up and running. It is a wonderful program. I know from experience that the program works, and it works in ways that the incarcerated youth are not able to see right now. After being out of Maclaren for over a decade, I must say that the people, dogs and instructors continually touch my life. Everyday. I am not sure if the youth realize, truly realize, what you are doing for them....I am not sure if you remember me or not, but I wanted you to know I really appreciate you, your program and your dedication. I often wonder about Project POOCH and to this day wish I could still be a part of it. It's a wonderful program. Thank you for keeping it going and hopefully growing"
