to People Like You.

For so many patients, neurorehabilitation at Shepherd Center is the difference-maker in a life full of possibility. And it simply is not possible without the generous support of time, talent, and treasure we receive from people like you. You help our patients and their families turn “I Can’t” into “I Can.”

Make a difference

Your Support Matters

Donations Make a Difference

As a nonprofit, we rely on donations to fund programs that change the lives of patients and their families. We offer more than clinical care. We treat the mind, body, and spirit, and yet, much of the support we provide patients and their families is not reimbursed by insurance. Because of your generosity, programs like recreation therapy and family housing help propel Shepherd patients into the next chapters in their lives.

Give the Gift of Your Time

Volunteers are critical members of the Shepherd Center team. We rely on hundreds of individuals, families, and companies who give their time and talent to make a difference. Whether you enjoy interacting with patients, assisting with fun events, providing group dinners, or even supporting administrative projects, volunteers have many opportunities to support the Shepherd team and make a difference in patients’ lives.
