So proud to represent @The Ana Grace Project's beautiful partnership with the Consolidated School District of New Britain. When we find a clip, we will air it. Thank you Ernie Anastos Fox 5- for running an entire 7 minute segment on our work!

We also gave shout outs to Klingberg Family Centers and Central Connecticut State University!

Thank you for remembering Ana. Thank you so much for your faith and belief in ALL children. They are truly our future. And thank you for your belief in us.

Thank you, God, for this incredible team.

Nelba 💜

Partnerships can be scary when you're a griever. Thank you CCSU- for making this process so painless, honoring and worthy of the memory of Ana!

These are but a few of the fearless committee of human beings at Central Connecticut State University who are making it possible for over 400 students and staff from Consolidated School District of New Britain to attend college as scholars for the day through the ana grace project!

They will get a taste of academic programs, activity with the engineering department and interact with our CCSU athletes!

It's a program that would not work without community collaboration, hard work, hearts, smarts and sheer unselfishness. We call it "Finish the Race" - and it would not be possible without all of the sponsors, donors, and volunteers!

This is going to be an amazing day for our scholars. They will be:

- moving through physical activity and play

- making connections with professors, staff and doing activities with engineering department

- exploring a college campus, campus life and possible careers

- understanding that there is life after high school and a world of possibilities before them

- having fun!!!!

We are almost our goal!!! Help push us over the edge! And thank you to President Zulma Toro and the entire community of CCSU, Fleet Feet West Hartford and all donors for showing strong!

Nelba 💜

#therapydogthursday

The Consolidated School District of New Britain is fortunate to have many therapy dogs who currently visit our schools. We will be highlighting the dogs throughout the year.

Did you know that Pet Partners also allows cats, horses, rabbits, pigs, birds, llamas and alpacas, guinea pigs and even rats to be therapy animals?

In order for a therapy dog or other animal to become registered through an organization, the dog and handler must pass a test. Many of our therapy dogs that visit CSDNB are registered through Pet Partners. The requirements for Pet Partners therapy animals are:

Pet Partners Handler’s Course

The handler’s course provides the person with a thorough background in the responsibilities and necessary considerations for successful volunteering in any facility you wish to visit.

Animal Health Screening Form

The Animal Health Screening Form will be signed by your veterinarian, confirming that your animal is healthy and able to participate in the program.

Team Evaluation

The team evaluation is a mock therapy animal visit conducted with a Pet Partners licensed evaluator. The evaluator will assess your ability to interpret and manage your animal’s behavior, as well as your animal’s response to your cues.

For more information on Pet Partners, visit www.petpartners.org<http://www.petpartners.org>

If you have a dog or another animal with a great temperament, consider looking into Pet Partners or other therapy dog organizations about evaluating you and your animal as a team!

#wonderouswednesdays

What a pleasant surprise when I walked into my office at Klingberg's Family Therapy Institute and saw this drawing in our waiting room chalk board. I must confess that I do not know the artist or artists that created this work of art, but it truly inspired me. To know that our work in our " Love Wins"Schools are teaching kids that #LOVEWINS. Shout out to this future math teacher that recognizes that when you add it all up, Love can defeat any negatives that we experience in life.

When we work together to allow children to heal by sharing our therapeutic message that empathy, compassion and community will allow for Love to truly win, we have allowed our children to be able to overcome trauma and obstacles in their lives.

So I want to thank you all for believing in the mission of the Ana Grace Project and for all of your support. We hope to see you in our events as we celebrate the life of Ana and of her dedicated family (Jimmy, Nelba and Isaiah).
