The LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry recently completed the Fall 2018 session of The Heart Connection. This is a Grief Counseling Program held twice yearly at Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park, Illinois. The program is offered at no charge to those enrolled. Children from the ages of 3-16, who have lost a close family member, participate in group sessions developed to help them process the feelings and hurts of losing a loved one. The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs sit in on the sessions and are available to bring love, compassion, and comfort to the children and staff. LCC has been honored to be a part of The Heart Connection for the past three years.
