Courage Forward, a nonprofit based in Downey, CA, is partnering with the City of Downey Parks and Recreation to bring shade canopies and chilled water fountains to Apollo Park. Apollo Park is one of the largest parks in the city and has a playground, BBQ area, baseball diamonds, indoor & outdoor athletic courts & restrooms.
Courage Forward (501 c3) offers support systems for Veterans that includes resources such as housing, job training, and job placement. Once the veteran is able and stable, he or she will use their experiences where at-promise youth unite with Veterans to find purpose together; forming unique tribes in which courage forward becomes a way of life.
Total project goal is $40,000 to be implemented within 6 months.
Phase 1 = $10,000

Phase 3 = $15,000
These funds will be used towards the units, engineering drawings for permit submittal, foundations, installation, tax, freight, construction debris removal, etc. The City of Downey Parks and Recreation will manage the installation project.
