These canines, trained by Veteran special ops dog handlers, are offered at zero cost to qualified individuals with disabilities.

I attended an American Dream U Entrepreneur Class for veterans. Absolutely Fantastic!!! The tools they provided and the outstanding guest speakers they brought allowed me to focus on a business idea that I’ve been toying around with. Now I’m getting ready to retire after 27 years in the military and thanks to ADU I’m well on my way to starting my first LLC. Thank You ADU!
