As part of Mirasol's family program, both clients and their families participate in high ropes challenge courses, including zip lines, high "V" and giant ladders. "Adding the challenge course has created a whole different dimension," according to Mirasol Executive Diane Ryan. "Families often tell us that it was the highlight of the program. It helps them feel connected and learn to communicate in a different way. So it really does what we want family program to do, which is put them in a place where they will have a whole different relationship going forward."
