U.S. Soldiers Continue to Contribute at Home, Patterns in Teenage Pregnancy, “PTSD Support Dogs”, and More, January 2011

Dreams can make a huge impact on our lives, that’s proven in this episode of Impact. All of our stories started with a dream, a desire to help others. In this episode learn about a local organization helping wounded veterans forced to leave service find new ways to serve their country and communities. We tell you about a program that wants to decrease the number of young teenage girls getting pregnant and increase the desire to further their education. There’s also the story of a prominent St. Louisan who gave up on the family business to start a school in North St. Louis so others could enjoy the same education he had. Plus, we go along as the first support dog is delivered to help a retired soldier deal with the anguish of his years fighting overseas. And finally, a woman whose idea to go green is eco-friendly.

Impact is living up to its name by highlighting people, companies, and organizations making the commitment to find innovative ways to improve the quality of life for others. These are the good news stories from our own community that will focus on those making a difference in someone's life, whether that's in their neighborhood, community or around the world. Tune in, it could have an impact on you!
