Lodestar is a 501 (c) 3 organization that provides service dogs, and emotional support dogs, to children who are blind or visually impaired FREE OF CHARGE.  The cost to train one service dog is as much as $15,000.  Our funding is provided  through private donations and fundraising events. 

 We are a small organization that focuses on quality of training and outstanding client support and satisfaction.  Because we only train a small amount of dogs each year,  we are able to get  to know our dogs in training  intimately and are able to build close relationships with our clients and their families. 





 MISSION: The purpose of Lodestar: Guiding Angels for the Blind is to promote independence, confidence, self esteem, and positive social support for children who are blind and visually impaired through the use of a service, or emotional support, dogs.


VISION: Enhancing the lives of blind and visually impaired children and their families.
