Last week, the children of  YWCA Cortland’s Here We Grow Daycare Center got a special visit from a few furry friends!

Oliver and Luna from Josie’s Journey stopped by to provide the children with “lots of smiles and giggles,” said founder Tammy-Barrows Goddard.

Josie’s Journey is a canine comfort service local to Cortland founded in 2019 to honor the memory of Tammy’s dog, Josie. They employ the mission of “using the presence of canines to provide support, comfort, and encouragement to individuals and/or groups during times of crisis and stressful situations.”

Thank you to Tammy and the Josie’s Journey crew for bringing joy and comfort to the children of our program!
