A Year of Transition and New Opportunities for Healing Powered by Your Generosity
Not having access to an in-person community has affected my daughter’s incentive to keep working to gain ground in her recovery. Isolation is very damaging and discouraging. I have come to realize this is also true for myself. The one place that provides community for brain injury recovery is Schurig Center. Thank you for all you are doing during this difficult time to support us! – Family Caregiver
Schurig Center successfully navigated its 36th year of service and experienced a ‘first’ in our history! We provided all services remotely for an entire year. The center’s team and our community of survivors and families are very proud of this accomplishment. Before this year, we never thought we would offer remote services. But, not only did we adapt to full remote access, these services resulted in positive outcomes and quality of life for our participants.
There were many challenges in keeping our services operating and the organization thriving this past year. Thanks to the support of caring people like you and our committed Board of Directors, Schurig Center was able to ride the waves. We truly believe the challenges we faced have made us stronger as an organization, a team, and a community.
We have many ‘silver linings’ to share with you…
- Hundreds of survivors and caregivers received service and stayed connected.
- 13 rehabilitative and supportive services were offered online or by phone.
- More class sessions and support groups were added.
- People from all over the U.S. were served with 53% being new to the center.
- Scholarship funding was offered to all clients who needed support.
- Participants expressed high satisfaction ratings with 91% reporting increased qualify of life from access to Schurig Center’s services.
- A conservative budget was maintained and we ended the year fiscally strong.
- Safe re-opening for on-site classes in Fall 2021 was planned and implemented.
With you by our side, our array of services and educational information impacted thousands of lives, including community members, professionals, survivors, and caregivers. Our classes, consultations, concussion program, and online resources extend our reach to more people than we can measure. Schurig Center could not have this impact without YOU. Thank you for all you do to support healing and connection for our fellow community members living with brain injury!
The remote support group, my first ever, was an eye-opening experience for me. Never before since my head injuries have I been with so many other survivors. I had no idea I was not alone. Thank you, Schurig Center, for being a vital part of my recovery. – Schurig Center Client
You helped provide an array of rehabilitative and supportive services for people living with brain injury.
With you by our side, Schurig Center has been able to offer all of our therapeutic and supportive services remotely with Zoom since April 2020 and our educational websites have also remained accessible. Remote services have made all difference this year for our clients who became more isolated than ever. Social distancing results in a backslide of abilities due to lack of stimulation, added strain on domestic relationships, and an increased need for support. Thanks to you, survivors and family caregivers continued to have access to an array of online programs to help them heal and stay connected from the safety of home, including:
- Aphasia class
- Art therapy
- CogEX computer-based cognitive training
- Communication skill building
- Resource referral assistance
- CogSmart training
- CORE therapeutic program
- Post-concussion education
- Survivor support group
- Family caregiver support group
- Concussion education program
- Brain injury information handbook
Without Schurig Center’s online services this year, it would have been bad. I would have been forced to be alone, and it would not have been a healthy situation. I’d probably be in a mental institution. – Survivor

Weare grateful for the many community donors who helped fill this funding gap this year.
