LOLA GIANT Vendor Profiles: Good Dog! Biscuits & Treats

Dianne Huggins for Lawrence Community Shelter

In 2006, Good Dog! Biscuits & Treats was created as a job training program for homeless people living at the Lawrence Community Shelter. Employees earn a living wage, pay taxes, learn a trade, experience workplace problems and successes, participate in board meetings. In short, everyone is involved in all aspects of Good Dog! Staff and volunteers are proud to say that in the last four years 16 people have moved from homelessness to housing and jobs outside the homeless community.
