On Thursday, August 23, the Ray Graham Association honored LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Eve (St. John’s – Lombard, Illinois) and her handlers for their partnership at an event in Lisle, Illinois. Due to prior commitment at Ronald McDonald House, Eve Comfort Dog was unable to attend but Patience (Comfort Dog-in-Training) filled in to represent the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry.
The Ray Graham Association provides residential, life skills services and employment opportunities to those with disabilities. Eve Comfort Dog and her handlers have been providing regular visits to the residential portion in Addison, Illinois, for the past three years. It has truly evolved from a “dog” visit to a “people” ministry over time. The handlers even provide visit time to residents without Eve Comfort Dog due to her busy schedule.
Congratulations to the St. John’s – Lombard LCC K-9 Ministry team for sharing the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ to clients of the Ray Graham Association.
