About The Good Fight Community Center in La Crosse, WI

Our Mission

The Good Fight’s charitable mission is to provide at-risk and disadvantaged youth with hope, encouragement, and a safe environment to develop personal goals, discipline, and values free from juvenile delinquency, substance abuse, truancy, crime gang activities, and other difficult challenges.

Our Vision

Our vision is to instill discipline and values among at risk and disadvantaged youth, to lift them out of poverty, to provide them with training and opportunities, and to motivate them to become productive members of society.

The Good Fight Vision

My son, Braeden, absolutely LOVES The Good Fight! He’s only been going a couple of months but already have seen an improvement in his overall confidence level.
