Graduate Resources

Our remarkable graduates and their families are the heart of our Shepherd Center story. That’s why you are one of the first to hear about our next chapter—one we hope you will be a part of with us. Our Pursuing Possible campaign will help us significantly expand our facilities so we can provide life-renewing care to more people in the decades to come. Will you join us in making it a success?

Pursuing Possible Vision and Purpose

@ShepherdCenter is seeking support to add family housing and expand its capacity to care for people facing catastrophic injury
and illness—people like [me/my husband/wife/daughter/brother/sister/mother/father]. The Pursuing Possible campaign will
ensure that Shepherd can help stories like [mine/ours] continue for generations to come. #PursuingPossible, #PursuingPossibleProud, #ISupportShepherd

"When [I/loved one] suffered my traumatic [injury/illness], [my wife/husband/daughter/brother/mother/father/loved one/me]
stayed in on-site family housing, allowing [them/me] to be by [my/his/her/their] side throughout [my/his/her/their] treatment.
Shepherd Center has launched the Pursuing Possible campaign to add housing so more families can heal together, too.
