Established since 2003, Soul Friends has provided therapeutic visits to over 5,500 children across the state of Connecticut. Soul Friends has established collaborative relationships with over 25 community agencies statewide, as well as being credentialed by the Department of Children and Families to serve children in need.

We believe in the stories of hope in healing of the human-animal bond – and we are committed to demonstrate continually our effectiveness through research efforts. Our vision is to be pro-active in service, creative in collaboration and consistent in the quality of our clinical and educational services to children across Connecticut.
