Challenge Center

Challenge Center is an exceptional not-for-profit 501(c)(3) restoring health, hope, and lives.  The Center provides skilled physical therapy, specialized fitness, and wellness programs to rehabilitate, increase independence, and improve the quality of life for seniors, individuals with severe physical disabilities, their families, and caregivers. With its licensed staff, physical therapy and assisted fitness programs, and state-of-the-art equipment; Challenge Center surpasses every goal by providing the continuum of care often missed by other limited resources.  


Challenge Center Scholarship Fund

Many seniors and individuals with severe disabilities are living with reduced and fixed incomes, and can feel as though they are out of options once health insurance coverage for rehabilitation ends. But Challenge Center's team works hard to raise money throughout the year, to be able to restore hope and function through it's Scholarship Fund. Clients of low-income, who are seniors or have a qualifying disability, can qualify to recieve up to 75% of their services with Challenge Center coverd by the Scholarship Fund! I many cases, this reduces the cost of Physical Therapy to what is comparable to an insurance co-pay, and an Assisted Fitness session may cost less then $5!
