To improve the quality of life for survivors of acquired brain injury and to raise community awareness about the causes and effects of these disabilities.
We help survivors and families adjust to a changed life after brain injury, concussion, and stroke.
Schurig Center is a non-profit community center offering an array of therapeutic, educational, and supportive services designed specifically to help brain injury survivors and their families live fully, meaningfully, and happily.
We help people adapt to their “new normal;” better understand the injury they have experienced; improve their abilities; stay connected to the community; and, build new lives of value and purpose. Scholarships are offered for those living on a low income to ensure everyone has access to the support they need. Our services are offered in a welcoming community center surrounded by a beautiful garden located on the College of Marin campus in Larkspur, CA. We welcome people from throughout the Bay Area.
- Everyone deserves a good quality of life.
- In the healing power of the arts and community.
- That unconditional compassion, innovative collaboration and unbridled generosity can make anything possible.
- In the power of creativity and fun. Not just as a powerful trauma healing tool that stimulates the brain, but as an engine that fuels our staff, board and community partners.
- That success is about progress, not perfection. If you are farther today than you were yesterday, we will celebrate it!
- That everyone can come as they are and be accepted.
The people Schurig Center serves are “us.”
Acquired brain injury (ABI) has many causes and is more widespread than is generally known. Brain injury does not discriminate. It can happen to anyone, at any time – from a stroke, concussion, accident, fall, sports, recreation, infection, aneurysm, tumor, heart failure, and other causes. Our clients are professionals, parents, sons and daughters, friends, neighbors, and family members – our local community. We serve adults ages 18 and up whose lives have been impacted by an acquired brain injury. We also serve their family members and caregivers.
Our Commitment to Inclusion & Connectedness
We don’t heal in isolation, but in community. At Schurig Center, our mission is to help all people feel less alone and live their best life possible after experiencing a brain injury. Our team is committed to fostering an inclusive, safe community where all are welcomed and accepted as they are, regardless of their sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, education, religion or financial circumstance. If your life has been changed by a brain injury, you are not alone. Schurig Center’s community is here for you.
