Finishing high school is a scary time. For the first time, our children have many life altering decisions to make. They will be venturing out into the “real world” as young adults and often may lose much of the support system they had as a child. We at The Blue Heeler Foundation hope to lessen that burden for our children in San Diego County by providing financial aid for higher education and high school internships to give young adults the skills and experience to they need to land jobs in the “real world”.
