Schreiber Stories

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.
