What People Are Saying

"Joe is a war vet whose addiction led to a brain injury and memory problems. Thanks to his determination and Traverse supports, Joe relearned vital independence skills. "Nobody who is 37 should be in a nursing home. Now I have my own place and I feel good because I make a difference for others.""

"Tim's diabetes caused him an acquired brain injury. When he achieved his goals at Traverse he said “Thank you for your time and patience” and added “Sua is a great girl, don’t ever let her go or you’ll go crazy!” My heart is touched that I got to be a part of Tim’s journey to independence. "
