"It has been well over 10 years since Resurrection House has done any inside renovations. Through the generosity of the Selby Foundation and others, we were able to complete major projects that were direly needed.

"The Shuttle and Bus Stop Project serves a dual purpose on the Southeastern Guide Dog campus. They provide a means to move guests safely, quietly, and efficiently through our campus as we share with them the tasks that we perform daily without interfering in the intensive work of breeding, raising, and training our dogs and ultimately their human partners. The shuttles also act as training tools for our guide dogs by replicating a bus stop on a city street allowing our trainers to train our guide dogs to locate a bus stop and bench for their human partners."Shuttle and Bus StopsSoutheastern Guide Dogs
