"Stepping Stones has been a great help to strengthen me both physically and spiritually. It has motivated me to get going and gave me the encouragement to try things even when I thought I would not be able to do them."
-Virgie Young
"I enjoyed myself every time I went to the Pool. I can walk really fast and get in and out of bed on my own. I have come a long way."
-Albert Marcinowski
