Canine Partners for Life, the Cochranville nonprofit that trains service dogs for people with disabilities, recently broke ground on Phase One of its $8.5 million expansion, writes Steven Hoffman for the Chester County Press.

Once the 8,000-square-foot expansion is complete, the facility on Faggs Manor Road will be much better equipped to accommodate the organization’s clients who use wheelchairs and scooters.

According to Darlene Sullivan, executive director and founder of the organization, the planned changes will make the Marian S. Ware Program Services Center the hub of the nonprofit’s program activities. It will house all Canine Partners’ staff, except for the kennel team.

“As Canine Partners for Life continues to grow and improve, it is imperative that our applicants, students, graduates, volunteers, and staff have a facility where they can learn and work in a space that is respectful of their individual needs and unique situations,” said Sullivan.

Dozens of Canine Partners’ staff members, volunteers, and supporters attended the groundbreaking. State Rep. John Lawrence praised Canine Partners for Life as a hidden treasure in the community with far-reaching impact.
