What We Do


Service Dogs

We were able to sponsor the training of a service dog for two boys with Down Syndrome. Training of this nature can take up to 3 years. The dog is currently in training but will soon be sent home with the family full time.


Live Like Ava provides annual scholarships to students in our community. One of the scholarships is given to a graduating senior from Oconto Falls High School. The second scholarship is given to a member of the Fusion Cheer Team.
