“The number one cause of DEATH among children with Autism is DROWNING. Knowledge of this fact coupled with the fact that my child is on the autism spectrum compelled me to get swimming lessons for him. My son received one to one instruction by instructors who use techniques essential to guide a child with special needs. My son is currently "water safe" thanks to Pools of Hope. “
- A. Ray
“Today, I can barely walk from a back injury. I have constant pain that never stops. I have shooting electrical jolts bolting up and down from my spine to my toes. I've had to face the demons of "pills" and for a while was so strung out on opiates I didn't much care about anything or anyone. Very much out of my character.
I turned to the VA for help in dealing with my pain and to help me get off the "pills". I was ordered to "Pools of Hope", where I met Dr. Alice Murphy. She literally saved my life.
Because of Pools of Hope and Dr. Murphy's hands on efforts and instructions, I had finally found a few moments of "pain-free" time. I was so happy I remember sitting in my chair after that first day, thanking God for whoever came up with the idea to put a pool like this somewhere.”
- J. Ochoa, Navy Veteran
