Assurant Solutions Funds Improvements To Sunrise Community Aquatic Center

Stocks in this article: AIZ

MIAMI, Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunrise Community, a national leader in providing residential and rehabilitation services for people with a wide range of intellectual and physical disabilities, recently recognized Assurant Solutions for donating $8,000 to renovate the pool deck at its Aquatic Center in Homestead, Florida. The Sunrise Community's 120-person campus in Homestead provides local people with disabilities the assistance and support they need to live healthier, more active lives.

During the last two decades the Sunrise Community's pool deck suffered thermal expansion damage and excessive wear and tear, rendering the pool virtually unusable for aquatic therapy and other activities. The new pool deck remedies these issues and maintains a significantly lower surface temperature over the summer months, making it safer and more comfortable for use by Sunrise Community's residents and therapists.

"The campus' Aquatic Center has provided its residents with essential aquatic therapy and access to recreational activities for over thirty years," said Ana Rojas-Filliben, senior vice-president of marketing and communications for Assurant Solutions. "We felt it was important to help contribute to its continued success and the local community by funding its repair. As members of the South Florida Community for over 60 years, Assurant Solutions enjoy opportunities like this to give back to local organizations."

Assurant Solutions is part of Assurant, a premier provider of specialized insurance products and related services in North America and select worldwide markets. Its Miami campus is the company's largest, with more than 6,000 employees at its facilities on Quail Roost Drive.

"The damaged condition of the pool deck made it very difficult for our therapists to run an effective aquatic therapy program," said Mary Ellen Kalina, executive director of the Homestead Sunrise Community campus. "Because we are aware of the numerous physical and psychological benefits of aquatic therapy for the men and women we serve, we felt an urgent need for a new pool deck. We are deeply grateful to Assurant Solutions for their generous donation to renovate this area." 

Sunrise Community operates an enriching and versatile aquatic therapy program year round, benefiting residents who have varying disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, mental retardation and spina bifida.
