Schreiber Stories

You gotta hear about this place

If you've ever been to Schreiber, you know the place is full of amazing stories. The dedicated staff that works with the kids every day. An amazing team of volunteers, from the folks who help with office tasks to board members and committee members. And the families.

Especially the families.

The moms and dads who deal with some of the toughest situations a parent can face. And the kids. The kids who come in here and put in so much work to make their lives better, more independent. And they do it with smiles.

There are lots of stories that we know you -- in Lancaster County and beyond -- would be interested in and connect with. And we want to tell them.

That's the purpose of this blog.

And we want to hear from you -- parents of Schreiber kiddos, Schreiber alumni, volunteers -- so that we hear about the stories we might not know about. Leave a comment here. Contact us on Facebook. Or shoot me an email.

Schreiber therapy makes difference in Vietnam

Posted by Dan  Permalink 

In May, Denisha Roberts took her second mission trip overseas with Brittany's Hope, a Lancaster County nonprofit that serves families and orphaned children, primarily in Vietnam and Africa. During her travels on this trip, Denisha worked with a 12-year-old boy named Quan. As we do in our therapy work here at Schreiber, Denisha's visit changed Quan's life. We talked recently about her trip. The interview has been edited for space and clarity.

John Hatch, longtime Schreiber volunteer, passes away

Posted by Dan  Permalink 

John Hatch was a familiar face here at Schreiber in the past few years. He was a neighbor, whose Homestead Village villa was close enough to our campus that he could hear of the squeals of the kids playing on the playground.

Thanks to two longtime Schreiber volunteers

Posted by Dan  Permalink 

Around Schreiber, we have a shorthand for talking about Tina Edgell and Patty Watson.

Tina and Patty. Or sometimes Patty and Tina. It may as well be PattyTina.

For most of the past 20 years, Tina and Patty have been reliable Schreiber volunteers. It's not a stretch to say they are among the most dedicated of all of our amazing volunteers, and that's saying something.

We wanted to take the time this week, during National Volunteer Week, to tell the Schreiber community about their support of Schreiber.

Schreiber's reach stretches around the world

Brittany's Hope is coordinating the trip.

Some of you probably already know that what we call Schreiber today has been around since 1936. In those 82 years, we have gone by several different names: The Society for Crippled Children and Adults, the National Easter Seals Society and, starting in 1994, Schreiber Pediatric Rehab Center of Lancaster County.

Now, we are excited to tell you about our new name and introduce our new logo.
