Freedom Waters Foundation, since it's inception, continues to allow participants to feel "normal" and happy by providing activities that they can enjoy and achieve "on their own" and also, offers all the wonderful caregivers moments of great solace to recharge.
This foundation inspires the BEST in everyone it touches and in every life it that it enriches.
Freedom Waters Foundation programs bring relaxation and happiness to everyone who encounters them. From kids to veterans to the volunteers who make it happen- all around great organization
I've worked with Freedom Waters Foundation for about three years now. I don't quite have the words to convey what a loving, giving organization this is. The many smiles, whether form children or adults, who we are fortunate enough to meet and spend time with, say more than any words could.
I think we volunteers are the truly lucky ones to have such wonderful participants to share our time with, whether fishing, kayaking, or enjoying a day on the water laughing.
Freedom Waters Foundation is an awesome non-profit. It creates smiles for everyone. FWF creates a relaxing, enjoyable day for all of its participants, as well as its volunteers.This organization has the most caring and giving people.
I believe I get as much happiness and fulfilłment as the participants get. Our leader Deb Frenkel has made this organization what it is, she has more heart than anyone I've ever met .
Awesome Organization, giving kids, families and veterans an opportunity to enjoy the waters of Florida - I love volunteering on and off the water. The rewards and smiles are Huge! - Thank you Freedom Waters Foundation.
I have volunteered for FreedomWaters Foundation several times, and every outing or event runs smoothly and is well organized.It's usually "the smiles on the faces"of the participants that confirm the efficacy of something as simple as a couple of hours in a boat on the water. The enthusiasm of the founder, Debra Frenkel and the volunteers is truly contagious, and among the volunteers there is an almost reluctant admission that, in working with those labeled disabled, and the kids fighting cancer, it's the volunteers who feel the most blessed after an outing. One of my most memorable expeiences with FWF occurred at a disabled sailing event, watching a blind man sail. I wish FWF success and growth in the future.
Thank you, Mike, for these very kind words. And, thank you for helping out as you do!!
I've had a great experience with Freedom Waters Foundation, first as a program participant, and also as a volunteer. My daughter has special needs, and we were invited to go on an outing hosted by Cruise Naples. It was a great experience that we both enjoyed. We were blessed with the opportunity to go on another outing the following year, and everyone was just as friendly and accommodating as the first time. What I like most is the way everyone makes us feel welcome. After being on the boat as a program participant, I became a FWF volunteer. As a volunteer, I enjoy helping out with small tasks like writing notecards or checking guests in at the registration table. Or simply being a part of the team that makes the trip a welcoming, fun and safe boating experience for other families. If I can make someone else feel welcome and appreciated by sharing a smile or sending a card in the mail, then my time as a volunteer was well-spent. And the FWF team always makes ME feel appreciated, even for performing the simplest of tasks. Its like a big family, and each time I go to FWF outings I have opportunities for socializing with people I enjoy and for making new friends.
Thank you Sheryl, for all you are doing to assist FWF to grow and share with more, in more communities. You are awesome! So honored to have met you and your family! And, so glad that Eva has been able to go boating with us. We will do it again!
