Mesothelioma & Veterans
Many Veterans were exposed to asbestos while protecting our country and are being diagnosed with mesothelioma now as a result. You can read more information about that at the resource link below.
Nursing Home Abuse Justice
Military Veterans are an especially at-risk group for abuse and mistreatment in nursing homes. An often-neglected group, Veterans, after serving their country, are commonly left without sufficient support systems, friends, family networks, mental and physical health care services. Veterans deserve high-quality care as they age, and private and VA-affiliated nursing homes are supposed to provide this. Sadly, Veteran abuse in nursing homes continues to harm these American heroes. Veterans and their family members can file reports with local authorities and nursing home attorneys to pursue justice after abuse occurs. At Nursing Home Abuse Justice our goal is to ensure that our message reaches the people who need to see it the most.

Retrieving Freedom, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to training service dogs to help people. Our primary focuses are training dogs to serve the needs of Veterans and children with Autism. We breed and train chosen dogs that exhibit specific traits necessary to perform tasks to help these individuals, and we believe in matching the dog to the recipient. Our training program isn’t designed to train each dog to follow a certain program. Instead, dogs are trained to meet the needs of their specific recipient. The dogs go through more than two years of training to meet our strict standards for a successful placement. RFI operates out of two locations, Waverly, Iowa, and Sedalia, Missouri as an accredited member of Assistance Dogs International. The service dogs we train help improve the lives of the people they are placed with. Not only do they help with specific chores and perform tasks associated with their training, but they also offer companionship and unconditional love.
