Sharon's Return to Sailing

"My grandfather made sure that we all knew how to sail. This favorite pastime filled me with confidence and strength. As often happens, my pastime was set aside for other commitments. At Center for Independent Futures, I have the privilege of supporting individuals to try new experiences. And yet, I was not getting any closer to going to getting back on a sailboat."
