Testimonials

“I left the Caregivers Retreat truly feeling like I’ve added a dozen sisters to my family. Life has been rough lately and stress is at an all time high.

Army SGT Greg Foster (Ret.) & Colleen Foster

Army CPL Kevin Dubois (Ret.)

Golf, for me, is physical and mental. Physically, golf has improved my balance and core strength, swinging a golf club is no easy task, especially on prosthetics. Mentally, when I get frustrated by the daily obstacles of wearing prosthetics and being in a wheelchair its nice to be to go out and hit a few… Read more »
