Description:

Rudyard school is a small K- 12 school. At the time of the deployment request, we were informed that three 9th grade students were injured in an ATV accident and were hospitalized. At that time it was known that one student had a severe concussion and a broken neck. The students are members o the volleyball team and were supposed to play in a tournament the day after the accident. The HOPE teams arrived and met with the school administration and their crisis response team. During the meeting students started arriving for the day. As soon as the meeting adjourned Brenda and Raven headed towards one student entrance and Karen and Charles headed to the other student entrance. Both dogs were well received but many students were unaware of the reason for our deployment. For them, we just said it was just to start their week off well. The volleyball team and coaches were brought together for a private session as they were the most affected. Two of the injured girls were actually able to attend school that morning. Their attendance greatly reduced the emotional turmoil of the students and staff. HOPE teams participated in recording a video for the remaining hospitalized student.

We arrived at the Beaumont Civic Center and set up our booth at 9:30. The event hours were 11:00-4:00; however, lines had formed around the building starting at 7:30. We started having interactions before entering the building with anxious people in line. Our three teams from Houston started visits from agency vendors and a few clients at the booth as soon as we got it set up, then started sending two teams at a time to the outside lines by 11:00. Sara Gubala and Reagan joined us at 12:30. Additional space for lines was set up inside the building, so we started visiting with clients there so people wouldn't lose their place in line. At about 3:00, it was announced that the event would end before all the people in line would be seen by the agencies they needed. The hours were extended until 5:00. The Red Cross made plans to register people at other places in the area but couldn't continue to use the civic center on Sunday or Monday.

RMR
Description:

HOPE was asked to support students over two lunch periods as part of their wellness week. Different positive activities were planned each day (nutrition, crafts, HOPE dogs, yoga) to hopefully help suicide prevention. Maria, our contact, said the students were "pumped" to see the dogs - it would be the highlight of their week. The students were very receptive and appreciative. On this subject, Dawn and Keeper had an interesting experience. Keeper is terrified of bees. We met with the students in an outside courtyard that had bees. The students would see Keeper shaking and ask Dawn if her dog was cold. Dawn explained that Keeper was afraid of bees, and then she watched these kids become exceptionally caring and concerned. As Dawn said: "a Disadvantage turned into an Advantage".
A fun note: Sandy Miller enjoyed visiting her alma mater

It was pure joy to see how much Rebel, Abbie and Pickle Juice made a difference to all these folks. They just did not want us to leave and could not thank us enough for being there.

Hope was contacted by Terri Keener to respond to the Vegas Strong Resiliency center for the Route 91 two year reunion on Sept 30th. We were also asked to attend events on October 1st in connection with the second anniversary of the shooting. In addition we were requested to attend a firefighter/family member peer support event on Saturday, September 28th in Henderson due to a fire fighter suicide . Star and I arrived to Henderson at 3:00 pm and were joined by Stephanie Berger at 5:00 pm. Our teams were recognized by several cal fire peer support members we have worked with from Montecito and Santa Rosa deployments. The debrief and follow up was very emotional as this had just happened. Everyone interacted with the dogs and were thankful we were there. The Route 91 reunion took place on Sunday the 29th at the Hard Rock Casino in the pool area. We were assigned a cabana with the Vegas Resiliency Center counselors. Stephanie and I arrived at 11:30 am and left at 7 pm. The reunion was well attended. This was a small and crowded venue with bands playing very loudly all day. We were able to move around the pool area and areas set up for remembrance walls and memorials. Despite being crowded and very loud our dogs did great work interacting with survivors. Several people showed me the dogs cards from last years reunion- and it was very special to be shown Star cards! Overall the reunion was upbeat and at the same time very emotional. Several people shared their stories with us and the dogs. It was a long and very fulfilling day. On Monday the 30th, Star and I were asked by our POC to visit the Driven Neuro Recovery Center in Las Vegas. We arrived at 1:30 and visited with stroke, spinal and brain injury patients doing physical therapy work. The staff and patients were amazing people and enjoyed visiting with Star. The director told me they were thinking of setting up dog therapy visits and after our visit she was definitely going to pursue that! Grace and Cathleen got in late Monday night. "1 October" is how the locals refer to the shooting. All four teams were present at the 6:30 am Sunrise Remembrance Ceremony at the Clark County Government Center. Several government officials, as well as fire and police, spoke. One member had lost a son . Several hundred people attended including families of victims. The dogs interacted with many people at the service. Afterwards we were asked to attend a Wellness Event where several services were being made available to help with coping with grief and stress. At 11:00 am we were asked to send dogs to The Healing Garden where the city of Las Vegas had built a beautiful area with 58 trees representing each person who had lost their lives. This was the main gathering area of the family members . Stephanie and I went over and were joined by Grace and Cathleen at 1:00 pm after the wellness fair ended. The dogs interacted with many people here. We left at 3:00 pm to give the dogs a break before returning at 7:30 pm to the Healing Gardens to be with the the families and friends. At 10 :05 pm, the actual time of the shooting, the mayor did the "Reading of the Names" of each person that was lost . Our dogs worked very hard from 7:30 pm -11:30 pm this evening. So many people reached out to get a pet or a hug. It is not possible to put into words the number of interactions and the emotions and words said on this day. We were thanked so many times for being there, as always we said it was an honor.

The National Day of Remembrance is to honor and remember family members who have been murdered. Families, victim advocates, district attorney and police department representatives attend. It is a time for each family group to honor their loved one by sharing with the group their picture, birth and death date and their age. Tammy Rafferty Johnson and Melissa Brown both spoke very movingly about the murder for hire of their husband and sister respectively by their brother in law. They were both targeted but thankfully were not present when the murders occurred. They spoke about how they were impacted and how they are now speaking out and working in the community to support other victims. There was some mingling before and after the service and we were able to bring joy and support to many individuals. Many of the families we knew through our work with the Parents of Murdered Children support group. It was meaningful for me to see the pictures of the children/family members they talk about each month

09/21/2019 Tropical Storm Imelda Red Cross Disaster Program Manager(TL), Sara Gubala and Reagan,

none

CGC
Description:

Tropical Storm Imelda hit Southeast Texas on September 18-19 bringing between 20-48 inches of rain throughout my area. Over 350 people are in shelters as of 9/21. The shelter I went to housed about 200 people. There were approximately 15 first responders assigned to this shelter and about 5 Red Cross workers. I reached out to the Red Cross on Friday, September 20 and they invited me to bring one of my HOPE dogs to a shelter that I could access. The two most damaged areas (Vidor and Hamshire-Fannett) were not accessible due to high water. We were asked to go to the shelter at the old Central High School location, 88 Jaguar Dr, Beaumont, TX 77702. Upon arriving, I checked in with the police officer stationed outside who told me a little about the shelter as well as gave me the name of the shelter manager - Mr. Sauter and asked me to find him before I went into the shelter. I found the shelter manager and he was very pleased to see us and said that the people were very stressed as some were going to be transported to a more longer term shelter in Lumberton, TX. He said that we were welcome to go inside and meet the people. Before we went in, there was a girl outside of the shelter who kept calling to my dog and saying "come here Kennedy", it turned out she was at the shelter in 2017 and remembered my other HOPE dog Kennedy. She reassured everyone out front that I had brought a very friendly dog to visit them. Upon entering the shelter, I was immediately bombarded by people wanting to pet my dog. The Red Cross staff yelled out "this shelter does not allow dogs", I approached the table to let them know who I was and that I was asked here by the local Red Cross director and they all said, she is a "working dog", I said yes and then things were good. One of the workers came out and hugged me as she remembered me from Hurricane Harvey. She suggested I have a spot to sit in and have the people come to me, I told her that was a great idea as this was their home and I wanted to be respectful of their space and their things. Within about 5 minutes of arriving, we had a line of people ready to pet my dog. This was the first call-out that my young HOPE dog has done, so I was interested to see how she would do. She was a pro, she was a little nervous at first as there was a lot of noise but once she realized what her job was, she settled in really well and found a lot of laps to climb into. One man came up to us as he thought she was a cocker spaniel, he told me that he has PTSD very badly. Reagan gently went up to him and put her head right in his lap. He started to cry and he asked me how did she know what to do? I told him she sensed he needed her. Several first responders came and sat with us, they said they had been working since early Thursday morning and had not been home. They asked if they could have time to pet her, I told them that she was there for everyone. Eventually the shelter manager came and sat with us, he told me it was the first time he had been able to sit down in probably 8 hours. Reagan knew just what to do and went right up to him to be loved on. We had a great visit today. They wanted me to stay longer but I felt that as a first time call out with this dog a little over 3 hours was perfect for her as it was just the right amount of time. The local Red Cross director texted me after my visit today and thanked me for coming. They have asked me to go back to another shelter but I am waiting for information from them to share with my Regional Director.

On Monday, September 16th, I received a call from the Child Abuse Services Team (CAST) supervisor asking us to respond to the CAST office reference the death of a co-worker. The death of the employee was extremely tragic and heartbreaking. Jan (Sequoia) and I (Henry) arrived at the CAST office in Orange, Ca at 0845. We were asked to walk around the facility and meet with the staff. We met with about 20-30 staff members for the next 2 hours. Henry and Sequoia were very engaging during this deployment. The staff is always under a high stress due to the nature of their job. The death made for a very distraught atmosphere.

This was the last time a sister of a murder victim would be attending the group as she is moving out of state. Last year, the first time we came was also her first time and her mother had talked her into coming because a dog would be there. Timmy was one of the "people" she thanked for helping her and encouraging her to keep coming. That was very moving to me and says in a nutshell why we do this.

MWR
Description:

This was the second day of a two day deployment following the death of a 7th grader who collapsed on the football field during practice the previous Wednesday. As per our usual response protocol, we deployed at the entrance to the school as the students arrived as well as in the hallways between classes throughout the day. Kay and Maia also deployed for a brief period to the elementary school.

Since it had been a week since the death of the student, things had mostly returned to normal at the school. However we did give some comfort to a few students throughout the day. Because the funeral was to be held at the school late that afternoon, we stood by until students were dismissed in case there was a need. There was none. It was determined that we were not needed before, during, and after the funeral.

Description:

The first two clients were very much routine, a three yo girl and a teen girl and a parent for each. We spent time in the playroom with the 3 yo and in the lounge area with the teenager whom I was able to engage in a conversation about dogs. She liked Lyrrik a lot and couldn't stop talking about her Aussie Cattle Dog, a rescue that really is HER dog, snuggles, protection and all. The third client, another teenage girl arrived with an armed escort and an entourage representing many different agencies. She was not at all interested in Lyrrik stating 'I just took a shower' so I offered him to the many adults assembled for her interview. Several were very appreciative and just his presence in the room seemed to slightly reduce the anxiety and tension. After well over an hour with the third client, it appeared the interview was going to take quite a long time, more than the usual, especially given the number of agencies present. Since the client hadn't shown any interest in Lyrrik, I asked Jen if there was any point in our staying any longer and she agreed there really wasn't anything more we could offer and she was very grateful for our visit. She remarked that the HOPE visits are always so much appreciated.

MWR
Description:

Request received by RD Nick Meier to deploy to Saranac Public Schools for a middle school student that had died during football practice. This occurred in view of many people due to two separate sporting events being held that day. The activity of Fire/Rescue and EMS on scene as well as the helicopter landing drew a large crowd to the field.

The team arrived at 0700 and the TL made contact with the assistant principal and superintendent as the principal was on vacation. We were briefed on the events of the day. The social workers were not present yet so the teams deployed to the entrances for the arrival of students. After the students were in class we were able to go to our break room and meet the counselors and mental health professionals. Everyone present was happy to have us there.

Throughout the day we sat in on one on one sessions with staff and 8 high risk students. We also deployed to the halls on breaks as well as a lunch held just for the football team. Initially one team deployed to the elementary school while the remainder stayed at the Junior/Senior high building. Later in the afternoon the remaining teams went to elementary. Right after the lunch the family of the student asked to bring the rest of the siblings in to meet the dogs in a private session which we accommodated.

Due to there being a four day holiday weekend the initial trauma of the event seemed to have worn off. There was not much emotion or distress being displayed. Students seemed glad to meet the dogs but it was difficult to judge how effective they were being at providing comfort versus just being happy to meet a dog.

Overall Day 1 went very well and we were well received. We made several good contacts with professionals that took copies of the tri-fold brochure for future use. We also got two new teams off to a good start and they did great.

This was a difficult day for all. We were asked if could come back on the anniversary of the shooting. Which was really special, we know our dogs did good work to be asked to come back. Having team leads was valuable for us.

Keeper and I were asked to come to Safe Passage on Monday at 9am. Our contact Jen said it was a very busy day for them. We spent time in the lounge area with several parents and children. We spent most of our time in the playroom with many young children. At one point there were 4 families there. Keeper remained calm even with 4 young boys playing war with transformers and race cars. I was so very proud of her. Most of the children stopped by for a short interaction but there were 3 who seemed to need her more. Keeper demanded (in her own subtle way) to visit with a police officer that was there. At the end, one of the young girls came up to me to say good bye. She gave me a hug and thanked me for letting her pat Keeper. That was one of the best hugs I have gotten in a long time!

Description:

I was asked to assist two young boys, ages 12 & 15, as they were called to court to give pre-trial testimony against the mother's boyfriend who had allegedly assaulted them. The defense attorney did not allow Cinder or myself to be present during their actual questioning, however, we were able to give lots of hugs and snuggles before and after. The youngest boy, (12), found great comfort in being able to pet Cinder while he tried to calm down. In fact the entire family, mother & older sister as well, found Cinder to be very comforting during this process. The defendant pleaded no contest, thus a trial was averted and he was immediately sentenced. The mother and older sister were able to give statements before he was sentenced. During their absence I stayed with the boys and we chatted about their dog, a one yr. old pit bull, school, etc. Cinder gave them high-fives, shook paws, rolled and got belly rubs. The stress meter seemed to go down appreciably.

We were flown in the day before the conference started on 8-6-19. Abby and Gertie met at dinner in our hotel. We were at the conference
Wednesday, 8-7-19 for 5 hours and Thursday 8-8-19 for 4 hours. Synack had a great corner booth for us. They wanted our group to have the best possible exposure to share our HOPE AACR mission with attendees. On the first night we were also asked to meet in the Synack Hospitality suite with the Synack leaders and USA Veterans. Both HOPE teams flew home on Friday 8-9-19. Lisa Whiting did so much in the pre-deployment to make our trip and set up with Synack a success. Lisa helped set up flight services, talked countless times with our POC with Synack. Even helped Photoshop the photos they used for our cards. Even though she wasn't onsite, she did all the work of
a Team Leader and all the worry if all would go as planned

Description:

HOPE teams were invited to participate in the WBL PD's Safety Camp. We presented to 4 groups of 20 children (3rd & 4th graders). We discussed Dog Bite Prevention, which included how to tell if a dog is friendly or not. We demonstrated how to read a dog's body language, how to correctly approach a dog (strange or known), and what to do if they are alone when a threatening dog approaches them. Because of the energy levels present in a group of 20 3rd & 4th graders, we were prepared to involve them in the presentation both physically and verbally. Our dogs gave a good example of being friendly but they failed when we used them to demonstrate a reactive dog, so luckily we had a photo board depicting several images of both good & bad signs. The dog's failure to be reactive did impress the Police who were chaperoning the groups, so that was good. We also distributed color sheets and a dog bite prevention bookmark at the end. The feedback from the PD was favorable and, in fact, the dogs were the favorite activity of the day!

Description:

We were requested to deploy to 3 South Texas counties (Cameron, Willacy and Hidalgo) to interact with FEMA employees and residents affected by the June 2019 flooding. The request came from Steven Wise, Volunteer Agency Liaison Group Supervisor, Mass Care/Emergency, Voluntary & Community Services Branch, Individual Assistance Division, HQ Office of Response and Recovery. We drove to Port Aransas, TX on Sunday, Aug. 4 and spent the night to break up the drive. The next day (Monday), we arrived at the DRC #2 – Willacy County, Community County Safe Room in Raymondville, Texas about 0900. Our contact person was DRC Manager - Glorimar Reyes-Soto. There were about 25 employees present. The FEMA employees were very happy to have the dogs there, and interacted with them until the DRC opened. One employee contacted local news and newspaper to come out and interview us. We were interviewed by 3 local news channels (channel 4 and channel 5 and Telemundo out of Harlingen) and one local newspaper. We left around 4 pm to return to our hotel for the night. We probably had about 175 interactions between 3 teams.

The next day (Tuesday), we drove deeper into South Texas to DRC #3 – Hidalgo County, in La Villa, Texas 78562. Our contact person was DRC Manager - Eleana Cruz-Mackliff. We arrived about 0830 and met with Eliana. We set up and immediately starting interacting with FEMA employees and clients. We were scheduled to stay just a few hours. Between 3 teams, we interacted with about 75 people before leaving before noon.

We then drove further into South Texas to DRC #1 – Cameron County, La Feria Safe Room, La Feria, Texas. Our contact person was DRC – Manager Elbert Ruiz. Since it was after lunch, it was already busy. We interacted with about 100 people before leaving around 1500. We then headed home, by way of Kings Restaurant in Riviera, TX. We interacted with about 15 people here and left to return to Port Aransas to spend the night. The next day (Wednesday), we drove home to the Houston area. In total, we drove about 850 miles in 3 days (Texas is a BIG state).

Carmen Franco, Senior Administrative Specialist Children and Family Services of Ventura County, contacted HOPE AACR asking for teams to visit 3 locations that have been dealing with the aftermath of a child death. I deployed to the Simi Valley location with my dog Maverick. We arrived early at 1:30pm and were taken into a large private lobby with an empty circle of chairs. Upon our arrival, our presence was announced on a loud speaker and employees came out to take seats and unwind with us. Maverick greeted each person as they came through the door and proceeded to wag his way around the circle, spending a bit of quality time with each person (sitting against their legs for hugs or offering himself up for belly rubs) while still staying aware of the others and moving around to greet everyone every few minutes. They clearly enjoyed our presence and had fun taking photos of him and sharing his trading card. After a while we were brought back into the main office area and walked around the cubicles to greet individuals who had not come out to the lobby. Several people sat down on the floor, right there among the cubicles, to enjoy doggy hugs, butterfly kisses, and belly rubs. We finished our visit with a group of interns who were brought to us during a break in their training. After their trainer took a group photo, the interns all gathered on the floor around Maverick and shared stories about their pet dogs while the trainer shared how a previous HOPE visit with Jodi and Daltrey helped them after the fires last year. They seem very grateful to have HOPE AACR as a resource.

This set-up enabled the residents requesting aid to visit with the comfort dogs while awaiting services. It also enabled us to visibly entertain children allowing their parents the opportunity to meet with the individual agencies to receive information and assistance.

Description:

This was a quick peer support call out for the aftermath of the Garlic Festival Shooting. Our primary response was peer support with the first responders, of which only those from American Medical Response were present. The event was still unfolding and many first responders were held on scene. We were able to provide support to 2 of the first ambulances that were on scene and transported patients. There was hope of being more attendees, but after the request came out, the Incident Command pulled units back in and held them till close to midnight. At that point, we determined that our services with HOPE and the peer support probably weren't going to be utilized today and it would be best to disband. This situation is still evolving and there will probably be more requests for our HOPE teams later in the coming weeks.

We were invited back to support attendees at the 2019 Air Medical Memorial Service. Every year, hundreds of thousands of air medical missions are flown in the United States. These missions provide expedited life-saving care to sick or injured patients when seconds count and at a moments notice. Sadly, these crews do not always return. This memorial honors those individuals who took on the mission in the name of saving lives, but lost their lives in the process. The Air Medical Memorial is the only national memorial recognizing all air medical losses and the only memorial dedicated to recognizing the sacrifice of more than 400 air medical crew members. On Friday night the Memorial Lights recognizes each sacrifice given to Air Medical Services since the early 1970's. A candle representing each honoree will be placed by hand, starting at sunset at the Memorial Site. This is always a very emotional and touching ceremony for those who have lost loved ones. We see many of the same families every year who want to continue to remember their loved ones. They travel from all over the US and Nationally.

This purpose of this deployment was to provide comfort to a young man with severe PTSD for his court appearance in the sentencing of the man convicted of Aggravated Robbery against him. We arrived at 7:30 am, expecting our client to arrive at 8:00, but he and his twin brother were already in the courtroom waiting area and very happy to see us. He was visibly comforted by petting and talking to Gus for the next hour as we waited for the sentencing trial to begin. He would have the opportunity to speak in court about the impact this crime has had on his life and was anxious about the sentencing outcome, particularly to know if there would be prison time or this man would be free on probation, and a risk to him. At 9:00, his case worker learned that the trial would have to be continued until Aug. 22. The Harris County jail unit was quarantined with no inmates leaving to make court appearances. We met one of the prosecutors and the judge, who were very happy to see in person the impact of this new program by HOPE with the Victim Assistance Unit. She invited us into the courtroom with our client to be familiarized with the setting. Our client wanted assurance that we would be there for him when the trial is held in August because it was so much comfort to him. Plans were made for the Victim Assistance Coordinator to contact HOPE to confirm when we are needed.

The Disaster Program Manager for the Valdosta Chapter of the American Red Cross (ARC) died suddenly and unexpectedly. He was a long time employee and was greatly loved by many people. His funeral was attended by a relatively large number of ARC personnel, including many leaders of the Georgia Region. This was a full military funeral at the Andersonville National Cemetery (for veterans). It was extremely hot and three shots we're fired by the honor guard. Many of the attendees, mostly immediate family, friends and ARC personnel, interacted with Butterscotch. They expressed appreciation that Butterscotch attended the funeral. Many had met her in previous disaster deployments and ARC meetings. The widow thanked us profusely and said that Butterscotch made her day! Several of the military personnel present (about 8 individuals) happily interacted with Butterscotch.

We used the opportunity to interact with the new Regional Disaster Officer (in charge of all Georgia disaster activities) and provide a brochure and contact information. We told her HOPE AACR had Georgia and other teams around the southeast that were available to assist in future disaster opportunities.

CSPD requested our support at this ICAC training/work session where Detectives/Investigators from our local department along with Officers from surrounding states were tasked with categorizing images of child victims (approximately 59 million nationwide). This week long meeting was taking place simultaneously with agencies across the country including the FBI. In addition to mental health professionals, massage therapists, and a stress relief/break/snack room, HOPE was asked to bring our four-footed angels to help relieve the 'vicarious trauma' to attendees at this incredibly difficult assignment.

Our HOPE dogs were enthusiastically welcomed and loved on by event organizers, attendees, support staff, hotel staff and profession specific vendors as well. In spite of the oppressive nature of this event, once the officers reached the break/stress relief room, nearly all were ready and open to the lighter atmosphere at sight of the dogs as they entered the room. Hardly a person could walk past without touching a dog and many of them just sat on the floor with them and soaked up their love. It was a privilege and extremely touching to witness their affect transformation. One Officer in conversation with Ann and me said "I can't describe it, but like yesterday with Lucas, Grace and Roxie, we'd pet them and they would absorb all the negativity." His face softened as he spoke relating his experience to us. I could never count the number of times "Thank You for being here" was heard throughout the day.

In debriefing with Ann and Joetta, we all were struck with how many networking opportunities presented themselves among the organizers we spoke to. Near the end of the day and after learning a little more about HOPE, they all were led to opportunities to utilize us and we felt confident we'd get requests in the future.

As they spent time working, they needed to decompress. They would come out of their training room and headed right for the dogs. We were a distraction for the horrible things they were seeing inside. Our dogs gave them a chance to decompress and think of happy things. The trainers were thrilled we were there to help the officers as were the officers

He had a great interest in hugging Calvin. Calvin continues to make a very positive impression on the staff as if they have adopted him as their mascot.

This is a very close office with 10-12 employees who provide child care resources and referrals to 6 counties in Montana. Gail, Lamar and I met outside of the office. Gail stayed outside while I made contact with POC Kristin Horne. Kristin showed me through the office and were she would like the canine team to visit with employees. One employee was allergic to dogs, but she was not at the office and she previously stated she was OK with the canine team coming through. I met the staff and each was asked by POC if they were OK with the canine team coming through. All employees were in agreement. Gail and Lamar came in and met with Kristin and began going from office to office. As the team leader I waited in the lobby and talked with the Executive Director. Gail and Lamar visited with 9 people and made a second round to cover the people who were busy earlier. The two people who were most impacted, the mother and her coworker were not at the office today. Gail, Lamar, and I waited for the coworker who was expected to come in, but the Executive Director came and let us know that she was not coming in today.

We were asked to stage on a large grass area beside the course and be available to the participants as they waited and completed this exercise. The kids loved the dogs and at any one time each dog had 5-6 kids patting them and talking to us. They were very respectful of both us and the dogs. As always there were a large mixture of emotions. Many talked about their own dogs and others their families. The POC Carl commented to me that he was amazed at how well our dogs did and the response from the children. After everyone had partipated in the obstacle course they did their group camp picture. The kids insisted the dogs joined in and in the front row no less!

Description:

I was called to assist in a domestic violence case, the victim was a teenage girl afraid to testify against her ex-boyfriend. We met the victim and her mother along with the Teresa Fyffe, Victim Advocate, and the attorney, for several hours before the proceedings began. The victim was very nervous, literally shaking constantly and only found relief when she petted Cinder. The defendant chose not to plead guilty in the case, thus, the trial ensued. This news created even more anxiety for the victim. The defense attorney objected vehemently to the presence of a "Courtroom Dog," even to the point of asking the presiding judge for the entire court system to get involved. I gave our attorney the letter stating Cinder and I had extensive training, she was a working dog, etc., etc., and was allowed to be present during the proceedings. The defense attorney still wanted it noted for the record that she objected to the presence of a "Courtroom Dog."

When the victim testified I sat in a chair behind her holding Cinder's leash while Cinder sat at her feet in the witness box. The victim often looked down, smiled, and petted Cinder on the head, it seemed to calm her down a bit. We returned to the gallery to listen to the defendants testimony, hear closing arguments and the judgment. Unfortunately the defendant was found not-guilty. This caused the victim to abruptly stand and storm out of the courtroom. Teresa, her mother and I followed her out into the hallway. After composing herself she seemed relieved it was all over. They all thanked Cinder and me for being there and thought it really helped lessen her anxiety. We rode down the elevator together and said our goodbyes.

Description:

Our initial call was to the LAC in Trona which came through San Bernadino County VOAD. The LAC was at Trona High School, the center for community needs in general. Water supply was disrupted due to line breakage; there were two tanker trucks, one with potable water and one not. Pallets of cases of bottled water were brought in by truckload. Many porta potties were out front as the community was also without working sewer.

The temperature was quite high, not only air but ground which is all sand and concrete. Inside was pleasant.

The LAC was in the gym with ample space for all services and a central area for the dogs to be when we weren’t walking around. Kids sat there on the floor, with the dogs, coloring. There was also a kids’ corner which we visited. Client attendance seemed low; the town is very small, less than 2000, so I’m not sure if the numbers were a matter of population or possibly a reticence to come in.

The Sheriff’s Dept. provided meals for staff and community three times a day.

While in Trona, we were invited to the LAC at the Kerr McGee Center in Ridgecrest, Kern County. This was a big facility with a sign in and waiting area, for those who came early, in the front room. It was well staffed including volunteers who escorted clients to the appropriate areas and were on hand to help in many ways. At check in, volunteers talked with clients to assess their needs; clients were given a printed list of all stations and numbers and the ones applicable to them were checked. Folks came in steadily throughout the day.

We walked around a lot but there was ample seating in the central area where the dogs could rest and, again, kids could gather and pet.

We noticed more anxiety among clients than there often is, probably because the earthquake danger was still ongoing. Several counseling services were available and utilized.

At the other end of Kerr McGee was the Red Cross Shelter; it had maybe 100 residents, and several had their own dogs. I visited with folks in the hall, but we did not take the dogs back.

Central World Kitchen provided meals for LAC staff and community.

Before the LAC opened, Bari and Steve were invited take their dogs to the Police Dept. which was next door to visit. They were received very gratefully.

As the Center was set in a grassy area with shade from the building and trees, breaks with the dogs were much easier.

Before the LAC opened, Bari and Steve were invited take their dogs to the Police Dept. which was next door to visit. They were received very gratefully.

As the Center was set in a grassy area with shade from the building and trees, breaks with the dogs were much easier.

Our presence in both LACs was deeply appreciated.

We were contacted by the Bay Area CISM team to respond to a local hospitals peer support leader. They had a group of nurses that had been camping together the week prior and one of their nurses, who was very young, was found dead in the morning. The staff was having a very difficult time and the Bay Area CISM team and HOPE dog teams were asked to be there the week prior for support and then were asked again for the official debriefing. Only Lady Grace and I were present for the debriefing, and she was very well received. I received multiple texts after the deployment from some of the other peer support counselors that this was the first time that there was a dog present, and wished they had the opportunity of having a dog to help people. One counselor said "it was incredible to watch her lay down in the middle and as she was exhaling, everyone's stress level palpably decreased. It was amazing to watch."

Description:

We were called on 6/25 to serve the 911 dispatchers at MCSO due to the pending death of a 40 year old dispatcher. The caller expressed that it was a lot of additional stress with everything else that they had going on, so they thought our dogs might lighten their load a bit. Stephanie found most all dispatchers to be in good spirits with no one really expressing any sadness. Jamie and Diane had a similar outcome. Diane stated that she and Jamie found it fascinating to listen in on calls, and really wondered how situations would play out. I found it amazing at how seemlessly these dispatchers flowed from conversations with us to doing their jobs when they received a call. They all seemed to really enjoy the dogs. The times were chosen to hit dispathers from both day and pm shifts

She was crying, upset and counselor trying to calm her down.The group had just done a memorial ceremony and lit candles. She immediately connected with Abby, the smaller dog, and was able to pet Libby's back. She returned to the group. Children were called in groups of 3 to visit the dogs. They were able to hug the dogs, Libby rolled over for belly rubs, and the children were shown how to hold Abby safely. The girl we initially saw interacted with both dogs. She was able to pet Libby's head and was much calmer.

PSW
Description:

This was our second visit to the LA Coroner's Office of which Calvin was very happily received again. We visited their staff from each of the three buildings and Calvin also met some new staff which were not working on the day of our previous visit. There was a great amount of conversation since our last visit regarding Calvin and his role as a HOPE AACR member which brought out more staff to meet and great Calvin. Calvin continues to make a very positive impression on the staff and they all wished their own animals were just as calm and comforting as are "all HOPE AACR dogs". Many cards were given out to those staff new to Calvin. We met some medical students from Ireland and Calvin had the opportunity to comfort a young lady that was tearful on the phone talking to her family overseas.

We also had the opportunity to visit with medical physician (coroners), prior to their staff meeting which brought many smiles to their faces.

I was given a card by a staff member of their former K-9 dog - Indiana "Indy" Bones, handler Karina Peck. He was a German Shepherd from the Netherlands and was a Human Remains Detection Canine who worked for the LA County Medical Examiner Office. He has unfortunately passed on, but leaves a legacy of love and professionalism with the LA Coroner's Office.

Lastly, unbeknown to me, the staff wanted to celebrate Calvin's June birthday, so two administrative assistants bought a "dog birthday cake" with Calvin's name on it to celebrate his June birthday; a very thoughtful gesture. Another employee gifted Calvin with as oversized tennis ball. A lot of kindness and appreciation to HOPE AACR in a daily difficult environment.

He also told us that when people sign up to rent their homes through AirBnB there is a place on the application to indicate if they are willing to offer their lodgings FREE to Disaster Responders. This is something all HOPE members should know about throughout the country.

There was an opportunity at the close of the meeting to tell everyone of upcoming events, I spoke about the AZ Screening in August and the workshop in October, Sybil Smith said she and another northern Az team were eager to participate and had already submitted their applications.

We arrived there at 9 am and stayed in t he lobby area at the "dog table" where people could come by and spend time with the dog as needed. After that we went into the other areas - call center and law offices to visit people while they worked at their desks. Spumoni posed in many selfies, absorbed some tears, performed some tricks - including delivering tissues to people.At about 12:30. "MK" the volunteer coordinator came to ask us to visit Bldg 1, as some people there had been directly involved in in the incident were there and asking for dog support.We spent about a half hour there absorbing more tears and doing tricks.

We met again with the engineers and the admin staff who were those who directly saw or heard what had happened. Today, everyone wanted to talk. I think they realized they were not going to be able to work until their emotions were sorted out. This was a very raw day. A lot of crying, shaking and sadness. Not as much anger as earlier days. People were begin to talk among themselves and were putting pieces of the story together and seeing where their story fit into the whole.

More people had been moved to other locations and there were a lot of discussions about personal space, the safety of open spaces, the lack of building security. A lot of comments about safety. A lot of comments about about the city "covering up" what actually happened to save face. A lot of comments about retirement.

A kindergarten student was hit and killed by a pickup truck. HOPE teams were requested by the school shortly after they were notified of the accident. We responded the next morning. Since we had been to Evart High School the previous February for another student death, the school, counselors, and the crisis response team were familiar with HOPE and we all worked together nicely. We met with the counselors and staff before the students arrived to plan the day. This was the last day of school and only a one-half day was scheduled. We did a meet and greet when the children arrived, deployed to classrooms where needed, did individual comfort to students and staff, and participated in an assembly. After the students were dismissed, we participated in a debriefing with faculty and staff.

Many were at work for the first time the day we arrived. Many had been assigned to new locations and were having to adjust to new surroundings and the loss of co-workers. After a brief orientation by Bob Pihlcrantz, we were divided into groups of one or two therapist/pastors and a dog team.

The dogs proved to be a great ice breaker and almost everyone began to talk about their own story of the day the shooting occurred, their sense of a loss of safety, fear of being in the workplace, lack of security, and inability to control random actions.

Description:

I was initially contacted via email by Paul Parker, Chief Deputy Director regarding Calvin and I being deployed to visit his staff of 250 employees who deal with death in some way or another all day, every day. His focus is on employee well-being and HOPE AACR would be an important part of this master plan of integrating crisis response dogs, chaplaincy programs, mindfulness training and increased availability of psychological and mental health resources.

Calvin and I were specifically referred to him by an attendee of the LA Science Museum Gala of which many of our HOPE dogs attended. I had a phone conversation with Paul prior to our deployment as well as with the Public Information Officer, Sarah Ardalani, who created and sent out a flyer with Calvin’s picture and information on it to all employees notifying them of our upcoming visit.

I was met in the main lobby by Paul and Sarah and for the following 3.5 hours we walked through each department in 3 buildings visiting with all staff that were available. Calvin was so well received by all and even pampered by one employee that brought him designer cookies from Pasadena. Everyone that interacted with Calvin all left smiling and were thrilled to receive a HOPE card from Calvin. At the end of our visit, Calvin received an LA Coroner’s pin and we were honored to be told we were now considered family.

In Paul Parker’s follow-up email from our visit he states that “our visit was the most positive addition to his office in many years.” He saw relationships with his staff and between his staff as well as smiles and happiness that was unobservable prior to our visit. Paul expressed to me that he would like Calvin and I to come up once per month as our time allows as he feels that Calvin has made an impressionable bond with his staff.

PSW
Description:

I received a call from the Vice Principal late Sunday afternoon requesting a team to visit the school Monday morning in support of a 1st grader who lost his mother very unexpectedly that that weekend. We have been deployed to the school several times before in past years and the school is part of a charter network of schools who have also used our services in the past several years. No other teams were available so I decided to deploy because of the relationships we had created with the administrators. It was an unusual grief support deployment since it was a parent death so impact on other students was minimal. On arriving, I met the VP in her office and she explained the particulars of the situation and that the student was in school, a decision by the father, to put some normalacy in his day after his loss. She asked us to spend the first hour of school with just him and then we would possibly visit the classroom. His teacher brought him to the VP office and stayed for about 10 minutes after introductions, all very “upbeat”, what a sweet dog, etc. then left so it was just Yodi, the boy and I sitting on the floor interacting. The door was open to the hallway so staff walking by would stop when they saw us, stick their head in and comment about the cute little dog, some coming in to pet him, most probably aware of the situation, all pretty “upbeat”. We talked about a range of topic (pets, school, soccer, legos, favorite animals, camp, friends, bikes...) and pet Yodi who laid with the boy. He wiped his eyes a 4 or 5 times during the visit but seemed to be trying to be strong and “normal”. It was rather tough. Once he said “My mother died this weekend and my father lost his car.” Another “Last night I dreamt my mother was alive but I know she’s not”. Walking a fine line between being supportive, “I’m so sorry” and not going down a path that might have taken the conversation deeper, was somewhat challenging. Usually you have Counselors available nearby when that type of support is needed. He really seemed to like Yodi being there and there was pretty constant boy-dog engagement. Another teacher came and got him after about an hour. He thanked us for coming and was pretty excited about Yodi’s trading card, showing it to the teacher and hugging Yodi. We visted with some of the other students for about another 20 minutes in the hallways and lobby area. The VP was in a meeting and there didn’t appear to be further need for us so the admin staff thanked us for being there and supporting the boy and we left.

While waiting in the parking lot for our POC to arrive, we took some pictures of the teams at the gorgeous bronze statute honoring the firefighters. When our POC arrived, he thought it was hilarious with us trying to get the 5 dogs to stay put in order to get the pictures. Our POC escorted us up to the dispatch center. We were greeted by some very excited and appreciative dispatchers, one of which had been on duty on Wednesday when the first round of HOPE dogs visited, so she definitely had to get all of our trading cards to complete her set (for now). We spent the next 2 hours visiting with both the day shift and night shift dispatch crews. It was extremely interesting hearing their stories of what happens on their shifts, how long their shifts can be, how they share the duties, and of course about their own animals. About 1930 hours while we were still on site, a call came in that one of the dispatchers that had just left the center at end of shift, had been in an auto accident on the way home - luckily she was not injured, so everyone took a deep breath.

PSW
Description:

We were asked to attend the Currie Middle School Mental Health Awareness Fair. Our role was to comfort students and staff at the fair. This was the schools first fair and the first exposure to Crisis Comfort dogs. Since there was only 2 teams, and no team leader, we were left to deal with all the very exuberant middle school children. There were two lunch shifts. During the first lunch shift, Henry and Bagel were swarmed by students. I asked the school staff to help with organizing the students so the dogs would not become overwhelmed or injured. One staff member made attempt to help but it was clear she didn't understand what the issue was. I could see Henry was not having a good day and was becoming stressed. After the first lunch shift, I took him to the car to rest. During the second lunch shift, I took the role of team leader for Grace and Bagel. Bagel did a great job of handling the second lunch shift. With me running interference for Grace and Bagel, it was a lot easier for Grace and Bagel to handle the students. After the second lunch shift, we left.

One of their explorers was involved in a car accident that proved to be fatal for him. Ms. Harr was looking for a dog or two to provide comfort to their Explorers, as they broke the news to them. Jan was unable to respond, but contacted me to see if I was available. Nikki and I were able to respond. We arrived at the station at 7:15pm and met with Maritza San Nicholas who took us to the room where the Explorers were being told by the Sheriff Chaplain that their friend was not going to make it. There was 32 people in the room of which 20 were Explorers. We were able to walk freely around the room as they talked about Michael and what a great person he was. Many hugged Nikki as they were trying to take in what happened. The evening ended with the Chaplain asking everyone to join hands and make a circle and he played the song “How Great Thou Are” and then said a Prayer. We thanked them for asking us to respond and we left around 9:00pm.

April 25th and April 26th was Great Oak High School Every 15 Minutes Program. Linda and Calvin and Michelle and Sundance arrived at GOHS at 8:30am on April 25th where we met at the command center (Performing Arts Center) to meet Dawn Roppe. We then accompanied the Grim Reaper to several student classrooms and then walked the “living dead” to the PAC.
The crash scene began at 10:00am. The crash left three dead (1 was the tow truck driver) and two injured. The dead were transported to the morgue. One student was transported to the hospital via Life Flight. One student was transported to the hospital via ambulance. The driver that caused the crash was arrested for drunk driving.
After the crash scene, all participants were invited to lunch in the PAC. Then at 2:00pm all involved students were transported via bus to one of two field trips to the jail or to the mortuary. At 5:00 pm the students met up at the Pechanga Government Center for dinner them returned to Pechanga Casino Hotel for the evening program.
TIP and HOPE made presentations to the group followed by Guest Speakers: Juan Carbajal, Bruce Pierson, Allison Pace (DA), Joseph Cristinzani (Senior Investigator) and Ymasumac-Maranon Davis. The final exercise was for the students to write a letter to their parents. During this time, the Hope dogs were walking around comforting the students.
April 26th- the assembly was held at 10:00am. The HOPE dogs were seated in the parent section. Introductions were made followed by a video depicting the previous day car crash and events. Then came the presentation of guest speakers, parent’s letters and student letters to their parents. The assembly ended approximately at 11:30am at which time all participants and their families were invited to the PAC for lunch. Many interactions occurred with the HOPE dogs and participants following the assembly and in the luncheon area.
We left the school about 2:00pm.

HOPE was asked to participate in the Every 15 Minute Program at Murrieta Valley High School. We arrived at the command center at 7:45 to meet and interact with the students chosen to reenact the crash scene and the 20 living dead students.The dogs were very well received by both the students, Police officers as well as medical staff present. We attended the crash reenactment, then stayed at the school until 2:30 supporting students. At 3:45 we arrived at the Hampton Inn Hotel for the evening dinner and retreat. Several speakers talked to the students about the consequences and punishment for driving under the influence or distracted driving that causes an accident. Afterwards the students wrote their letters to their parents which is always emotional. The evening ended around 10pm. The next morning we arrived at 9:30 for the assembly. I have participated in several E15 programs and usually the assembly involves the dogs with the students and families of the participants. This time we were asked to stage in the bleachers. After the video was played we were asked for a dog to go outside to work with TIP volunteers with students affected by the reenactment video. Soon I was asked to come outside with Star due to the number of students that left the assembly emotionally touched due to their own experiences. After the assembly was over we were asked for a dog back inside to assist some students. Soon both dogs were inside to work with students. We attended the lunch for families and student participants and left around 12:30.
