“Schurig Center helps survivors and their families not only survive, but thrive.”

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.

We are so fortunate to have a resource like Schurig Center in our community.- Family member
