It’s not often a person experiencing homelessness comes to the doors of Cherry Street with a service dog.  Dakota is a vigilant and dutiful canine companion.  He guards the health and well being of one of our guests.  He is not a dog for everyone to pet and fawn over.  But when he does have “down-time” he has his favorite people and even got a bath at the Life Revitalization Center this summer.  The autumn, Dakota celebrated his 10th birthday with special cookies and singing from his many admirers.
