Our Successes Meet Todd
Todd Delong is one of 12 veterans CSI welcomed to our support family in 2019 when CSI VA expanded their supports of persons with brain injuries to include veterans of the United States Military. At the center of Todd’s journey toward living life well is the hard work he did learning to accommodate his new challenges. In his first year at CSI, Todd focused on building his network of social support, and his transformation has been an inspiration to us all.
Victories we are Grateful to Celebrate
Todd has had many successes since coming to CSI, from branching out and meeting new wounded warriors within support groups, expanding his social capital within the community, and experiencing new and exciting activities of interest. Of all Todd’s accomplishments, learning to utilize transportation applications on his smart-phone has proven to bring additional independence and growth into his life.
Todd, now without restriction, can meet friends for dinner, go to a movie, or attend a wounded warrior support group across town with independence.
“You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.” ~ William Faulkner
Kudos to Todd, for his dedication to learning something new and his ability to understand and navigate the application on his phone, which will no doubt bring him further happiness and freedom as he moves forward. Great job, Ranger Sir!
Honoring our Heroes: Giving Thanks for our Veterans
We couldn’t be prouder of the Veterans in our CSI community, and we are especially proud of our own Veterans in the CSI Family. These soldiers continue to be heroes by helping persons with disabilities find happiness in their own homes, in their personal relationships, and as contributing members of their community.
We are honored to work with heroes who inspire us every day.
“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” ~ Elmer Davis
