SCwSG is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by Paul and Dr. Diane Dike in 2007 with a desire to help others and make their dreams come true. After rescuing Gracie, an injured and homeless Italian Greyhound, Diane trained her to become her service dog. Gracie helps her overcome and more safely live with cryoglobulinemia vasculitis, a life-threatening blood disease. Diane shares their incredible story at events, on radio and TV, and in magazines, blogs, newspapers and other media to raise awareness for the many ways SCwSG helps hurting people and animals.
SCwSG has a vibrant and thriving volunteer and internship program that is transforming lives everywhere. Our Dream Team is made up of dedicated people of all ages who are sharing their talents to proclaim our mission message that everyone can receive a second chance with God’s saving grace!
During a recent Children’s Hospital story time and Love Kit giveaway, a teary-eyed mother, pulling her child in a red wagon with tubes and IVs in tow, said, "I'll never forget this day as long as I live. It's the first time my child has smiled in months. Thank you!"
Paul, Gracie & Diane have made it their life’s purpose to help as many people and animals as they can.
"I’ve overcome much. I will not let my challenging circumstances keep me from living a life of impact and purpose." ― Dr. Diane Dike
