Partnering people with dogs to improve lives

EENP harnesses the unique strengths of human-canine partnerships. We teach inmates to train assistance dogs that we then partner with people who have disabilities.


A generous supporter has offered to match gifts the week of May 5-11 for Giving Tuesday Now! Your gift helps EENP develop a new, safe way to make our placements and support our immunocompromised clients through the pandemic. Learn more about the challenge and donate at

We've moved!

We have purchased a property in Hillsborough that will become our permanent home in 2020. In the meantime, we have moved from our longtime space on Lloyd St to interim offices on West Rosemary Street in Chapel Hill. Our mailing and physical addresses can be found at the bottom of every page of our website.
