"I was reclusive for three years. I got really ill and was hospitalized… I came to the Village for rehab and joined the LIFE program … Since joining, I’ve been getting physical therapy, which I’m hoping will have me able to dance by summer. I’m making new friends among other members as well as employees. I love it here and I’m so glad I joined."
