Courage Center is a shining light in the lives of so many. It has been a blessing to my child for 8+ years. Please support them if you can!

I am glad the courage center worked for you,But the brain injury adult day did not work for my husband. He realy liked going there.Brain injury people yell out sometimes and try to get attention. They did crafts one day and put something sharp by him and he grabed it and threaten them. Well this happened before and it was said not to have sharp things by him,well they had a sharp tool by him again and he grabed it again. They said maybe more drugs would help. Well then he was a sombie.Sleeping all the time. He never went back.I have learned so much about brain injury since his brain annersym and one thing i learned is they do this. I talk to him calm and walk away and he says he is sorry. I know it was for the safety of others but he had a bad day and then your out. Now i heard they dont have adult day anymore and now i know why. Sometimes a person does not need more drugs just compassion. I am glad for you though. Its a long road.Hang in there.

Courage Center does more than help people recover, it helps people adapt when no recovery will come.

My son had ALS also known as Lou Gehrigs Disease from which people do not recover. Maybe someday.

Without the use of adaptive equipment from the St. Croix Center and the wonderful people who helped us all learn how to use it, my son would have had no way of communication.

They truly do wonderful work and deserve much thanks and support.

I've been attending Courage St. Croix for 10 years following my stroke. The people and facility are fantastic. I have learned much from people there who have the same disability I have.I urge you to support this fine facility. I never thought I would need it either but your life can change in the blink of an eye. My sincere thanks to Peter and all the staff for all thier help over the last 10 years.

I urge Mr. Peltier to join one of the Strokers Pool Classes. Great exercise, socialization and friendships from people that suffer from the same disability he does.We really need to get more people involved in the Mon & Wed class.
