Our therapy services are located in four Twin Cities locations: Golden Valley, Stillwater, Burnsville and Forest Lake. We also operate two residential camps, and offer sports and recreation in Duluth, Minn. We also offer a wide range of home and community based therapy.
My family & I are all involved with the Courage Center's Ski & Snow Board program. My Son is a client in the program. I am a volunteer instructor/trainer and my daughter volunteers as a Ski Buddy. My wife gets everyone where they need to be, when they need to be there.
Our involvement with the program has provided a couple of things that I am not sure we could get anywhere else.
It's a fun family volunteer activity that we all feel is valuable and contributes to the health and well being of others.
It teaches my children the value of volunteerism.
It helps my son to realize that, even with a diasbility, he can achieve whatever he wants to do in life. As the DSUSA race team slogan says. "If I can do this, I can do anything".
