Hosted by Debbie Dahmer
Guest will Be: Grace Hamlin- Founder of The W-Underdogs
The W-Underdogs is an innovative grassroots nonprofit that pairs underserved youth with animals in need. Our program helps youth at risk for gang involvement in the Peoplestown / South Atlanta neighborhoods gain leadership, responsibility, life skills, and compassion as they use teamwork to train and care for animals. They become empowered to make positive changes at school, home and in their community through advocacy and direct action.
The W-Underdogs goal every day will be to address the challenges that disadvantaged at-risk youth face and provide them with the skills and sense of accomplishment to help them overcome the challenges in their lives. We believe that the W-Underdogs program will energize the families, kids and in turn, contribute to a better community both short and long term.
Our doghouses are made from recycled material kids find in the neighborhood. We are always looking for partners to help us with materials, waterproofing, hinges, screws, glue and sealants. Always collecting dog houses for our outreach program.
