Homeless Shelter in Glasgow to allow Dogs

The Glasgow City Mission in Scotland is partnering with Dogs Trust to supply items such as food, bedding and treats so that guests can keep their dogs with them.  Part of the decision involves the understanding that dogs (and other pets) can provide great comfort to people suffering from trauma.    This BBC Article provides details.

” We recognise the importance of dogs to some of our guests and want to ensure that those who own a dog will be able to get a good night’s sleep in the shelter knowing their dog is comfortable and warm beside them.”       Today News US video

Prisoners Learn Coding for Better Job Prospects

The Last Mile is a program started in a California prison that teaches prisoners coding to improve their chances of getting a job after their release. It just makes sense to teach practical skills to improve employability. Here’s the story from WTXL which I found on the Good News Network.

  1. A single gay man wanted to adopt but was told he would never get to do so unless the child was born with an illness, a severe disability, or behavioral problems. Then a child was abandoned who just happened to have Down’s Syndrome. They immediately called him. What they didn’t realize was how overjoyed this man was to hear about a possible future son, since from age 14 he had worked with disabled individuals. He had both the experience, and the longing. A loving father, and grateful son have since been connected, and I have every confidence, they will live happily ever after. Good News!!! 🙂

  2. It’s good to read about the dogs being cared for.
