At Schurig Center for Brain Injury Recovery, we make the recovery process after a brain injury or stroke more holistic and hopeful for survivors and their families. We pick up where the healthcare system leaves off, helping survivors continue their journey to recovery after they’ve completed initial rehabilitation. Our skilled staff and generous donors support a community of brave, determined, and capable people who are striving to rebuild their lives. And who just happen to be your friends, neighbors and colleagues. Connection, support, care – that's what we provide. Schurig Center gives survivors and their loved ones a place to gather, to learn, to rehabilitate, and to discuss their challenges and share their triumphs.
Brain injury is a pause button.
Schurig Center helps survivors hit play again.
My life was saved by my interactions with Schurig Center.
I am only one of hundreds of people who have had life breathed back into their soul by walking through those doors.- Heidi, TBI survivor
There are services for athletes who have had a concussion, but there are none for those of us who were injured outside of sports. Schurig Center addresses this need for the community. I would have fallen through the cracks of the medical system without their help.- Amy, TBI & concussion survivor
My mother's stroke didn't just happen to her, it happened to my whole family.
We are so fortunate to have a resource like Schurig Center in our community.- Family member

Schurig Center began because of the vision of a caregiver – Karen – who believed being with others who understand and who truly care, leads to a better life than being alone. Over 30 years later, that vision carries on. At this year’s Summer Solstice Social, we celebrated the amazing community that has grown around our center and honored caregivers for their love, support, and caring. On June 23, our “tribe” gathered to enjoy tasty BBQ hot off the grill and homemade ice cream while listening to the soulful live music of Joey Wolpert and Bob Hahn from the B Sharp Blues Band. Plus, caregivers were treated to gifts and some much-deserved pampering and relaxation, including massages from Chrissy Kors. [Read more…]
Conceived and written collaboratively by Schurig Center Therapeutic Program participants, the poem “Like a Sunflower” honors the tremendous love, support, and caring that family members and caregivers give so selflessly each and every day to their loved one. “Before I was thrown off the path of my life, I was me and you were you. Whether you joined this journey before or after, thank you dearly for all you do. “ [Read the whole poem…]
