Stories of Friendship

Friendship in Action

This child didn't know how to swim, but with the help of a nose plug, some goggles and a kickboard, she learned how to hold her breath underwater and is making great progress in learning to swim.


A special thanks to the teaching skills of our volunteer, a former PE teacher.

“I’ve been through a lot. I was lucky that I had a great support system to get me through my hardest times. Now I am able to get out of bed in the morning. I want to show others they can get through anything too.”

Beth, age 47

It's not how many friends you can count -- it's how many friends you can count on

“My world had fallen apart and I felt deserted.  My compeer volunteer was a sudden light.  These days I am so much better and my compeer friend is a huge part of it.”
