Luke Gives Back
Canine Companions for Independence
NextHome's Official National Charity Partner
Following a thorough selection process alongside our Charity Committee, NextHome selected Canine Companions for Independence as our national charity partner. Through their assistance dogs program, this non-profit organization has a direct and incredibly positive impact on the lives of children, adults, and veterans with disabilities.
Your generous donations allow Canine Companions for Independence to offer expertly-trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities at no charge to them. NextHome is proud to support this great cause and we have set an annual goal of raising $100,000 for the organization. With your help, together we can fund the breeding, raising, and training of more puppies who will go on to make a difference in the lives of those who need it most.
