Survivors and their families need our help…
And we need yours!
Your support provides a critical lifeline of hope, healing and purpose for hundreds of brain injury survivors each year.
Schurig Center is a beautiful example of what happens when people come together towards a common goal. Community support plays a critical role in enabling our center to continue to strengthen and expand services to address the gaps in the continuum of care for brain injury survivors and their families.
Your gift will impact the lives of over 2,000 survivors, caregivers, and community members a year who rely on Schurig Center for our on-site therapeutic services, resource referral assistance, concussion education, and educational presentations.
We believe it’s important for you to know that…
- We must fund raise over 85% of our annual budget.
- We do not receive health insurance reimbursement fees.
- We receive very minimal government funding.
- We believe everyone should have access to our services. We offer all of our services on a sliding-scale or free and turn no one away based on financial ability.
- 70% of the people we serve are living on a low-income.
- Community support plays a vital role in enabling us to carry forth our mission.
