Together We Heal
Although Schurig Center is currently closed to people coming on site, we remain open for service - virtually. Schurig Center continues to be an essential source of connection and care for people impacted by brain injury, concussion, or stroke. We are still here to help!
A global crisis like COVID-19 can cause stress for all of us. For people living with brain injury, this crisis can exacerbate challenges they already face. Social distancing can increase feelings of loneliness; result in a backslide of abilities due to lack of stimulation; add stress to domestic relationships; and, increase the need for support.
It's more important than ever that services continue to be available to support the health of those in our community living with brain injury. That's why we've adapted many of our rehabilitative and supportive services to be offered remotely during shelter-in-place. And, we need your help!
In times of uncertainty, we see the best of our community emerge.
Thank you for helping us continue to provide critically-needed
connection and care, during and after this crisis.
Your Generosity Provides Essential Connection & Care

“The single most important thing that can happen right now in this pandemic is that we feel our collectivity — that we’re here to help each other move through this.” – Tara Brach

It was once believed that people who sustained a Concussion would typically recover fully in a few months. Research now shows over 50% of people who sustain even just one Concussion may experience significant long-term effects for a year or longer. Thanks to your support, adults living with the effects of a Concussion are helped by innovative services not available anywhere else in our area; services that are gaining recognition as a model program.
