20 August 2015
The MENTOR Network Charitable Foundation is pleased to announce that 10 organizations have recently been awarded grants through the Foundation’s Community Partners program for the third quarter of 2015. Community Partners are change agents within human services that are either delivering innovative care or developing new ideas and models for doing so. They are results oriented, leveraging resources and knowledge to positively impact individuals and communities and transform society’s vision of and approach to its most vulnerable members.
Among the Q3 Community Partners is ShowMe Aquatics & Fitness in St. Charles, Mo.
ShowMe Aquatics & Fitness
Aqua Ability Program
ShowMe Aquatics & Fitness provides aquatic physical and occupational therapy activities that build self-confidence, improve physical strength and overall quality of life for 23 young adults ranging in age from 15 to 21 years old living with a developmental or acquired disability in the St. Louis metropolitan area. The Aqua Ability Program offers the community model of therapy, which combines exercise and rehabilitation with psycho/social re-integration, all of which are vital to the body and mind of a person with a disability. Funding from The MENTOR Network Charitable Foundation will be used to support staffing costs associated with this program.
