Hilo, HI (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
Pacific Quest wilderness therapy program, located on the Big Island of Hawaii, has been helping struggling teens since 2004. Recently, Pacific Quest partnered with Sky’s the Limit Fund to help provide grant money for at-risk youth and their families who would otherwise be unable to afford the tuition and enrollment fees of wilderness therapy. In this new partnership, all grant money provided by Sky’s the Limit Fund will be matched by Pacific Quest. When asked for comments, Pacific Quest’s Business Director Mark Agosto stated, “we are excited to work with Sky’s the Limit Fund to offer our services to more families in need of help, and to ultimately change the lives of young people who would by no fault of their own be unable to experience what Pacific Quest has to offer.”
Sky’s the Limit Fund is an organization that was founded in 2010 by Rochelle Bochner and Lani Dorff. Rochelle and Lani are strong advocates for the benefits of outdoor therapeutic programs and their foundation is dedicated to assisting as many students as possible in receiving the opportunity to experience what wilderness therapy programs have to offer. Pacific Quest is proud to support the Sky's the Limit Fund mission to: “Transform the lives of at-risk youth by providing grants, support, and hope through wilderness therapy programs and beyond.” Breaking financial barriers for troubled youth and their families to have access to innovative treatment programs such as Pacific Quest is a noble endeavor that will inevitably lead to new opportunities for families and youth in crisis.
