Review for Courage Center, Golden Valley, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Courage Center is filled with highly professional and deeply caring staff who understand the challenges faced by those with disabilities and work tirelessly to ensure that a person's disability doesn't get in the way of his/her ability to realize their dreams. My son started at Courage Center doing warm water swimming and therapy as a 6 year old. With the love, support, guidance and opportunities provided by Courage Center he has become a 19 year old internationally ranked athlete and just won a gold medal with Team USA at the World Wheelchair Rugby Championships. I can state unequivocally that he would not be where he is today as an athlete (and as a college student) if it hadn't been for Courage Center. His experience at Courage was life changing in a truly fundamental way - he is who he is because of Courage Center.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

making a difference in my son's life and the lives of his friends and teammates. I've seen how kids with disabilities who are mentored and supported can become the best they can be.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find a better way to support the finances, to help them to get the resources they need.

Role:  Client Served & I supported my son's use of courage center and the sports program at Courage. .
