South Central Training CenterServing the state of Texas
Canine Companions for Independence South Central Region is the sixth and newest region. The Kinkeade Campus at Baylor Scott & White Health is located in Irving, Texas, and is the first assistance dog program to partner with a healthcare system. The campus is named for United States District Judge Ed Kinkeade, who took the lead in bringing this partnership together for the formation of a campus to serve the state of Texas. Opened in November 2015, the Kinkeade campus recently celebrated its two-year anniversary. We look forward to continuing to enhance lives through our wonderful assistance dogs in the Lone Star State.
