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 has been a game changer for my grandson. He was a shy, introvert, and now being at the GF for over a year, he isn’t nearly as shy as he once was, he also shows more confidence and self respect. I am so grateful for the program πŸ™‚
