Life Challenge Home

The Life Challenge Program was founded by Shawna Legarza and is supported through the Wildland Firefighter Foundation.

The life challenge program is a grassroots, peer support based program that helps firefighters, friends, co-workers and families to better understand, prevent and deal with suicide.

The intent for this program is to provide information through seminars, helpful links, professional readings and personal reflections so individuals can learn to effectively manage their mental and emotional state of mind during times of stress. This program offers reference materials and additional information to provide guidance and support. This program is intended to offer a safe place for firefighters to reach out and find information. Our vision is to hope individuals will learn and achieve a positive state of mind with strategies to create and maintain a higher quality of life both personally and professionally.

“This program is dedicated to those who are the survivors of a loved one or co-worker who has committed suicide”, said Shawna Legarza
