We are grateful to our partners for helping us make a difference in the lives of veterans and families affected by PTSD and brain injury.
Participating veterans and family members serve as active partners in Dancing Well. Through ongoing feedback, they help us understand the challenges of PTSD and brain injury. They also play a key role in outreach, recruiting, fundraising, and visioning.
Veterans and veteran organizations provide critical volunteer support, as well, helping Dancing Well with photo documentation, dance partnering, and venue, among other needs. We are grateful to a veterans organization in Louisville for providing our beautiful dance space at no charge, to John Nation for donating his amazing photography, to the local VA Medical Center for assisting us in recruitment efforts and to the many vets who dance with us as volunteers.
Through the generous support of our Community Partners, we are able to provide weekly dances for our veterans and their loved ones, as well as a new Leadership Training curriculum for those interested in bringing dance to veterans affected by PTSD and brain injury in their own community.
Dancing Well is grateful for the generosity of:
Jacob and Nancy Bloom
