Your support makes it possible for FAR to help people of all ages throughout Southeast Michigan who are struggling to overcome physical, intellectual and emotional challenges. The impact of FAR’s therapies has been proven over its 60+ years serving this community and the scholarships FAR provides ensure that everyone who needs these services can get them.
