Where HEROES Are Made Campaign

The Campaign to Renovate and Expand Schreiber

Help us fulfill our Chairman’s Challenge. Make a gift to the Kids’ Care Fund today.

In 1936, our hero Edna Schreiber began helping children and adults stricken with polio relearn to walk. What began as one woman’s calling has become a world-class therapeutic treatment center. One thing has remained constant for 87 years: Our therapists make miracles happen every day.

We began our $12.4 million Where Heroes are Made capital campaign in October 2022, and one year later, through the generosity of out community, have reached 98% of our fundraising goal.

We’ve achieved the first of our campaign goals. Bringing all of Schreiber’s services together under one roof with a new three-story addition. As renovation to our existing facility begins, we turn our attention to building the Kids’ Care Fund, a sustainable revenue stream designed to support Schreiber’s services now and into the future.

As we did in 1936, Schreiber continues to treat children across our region regardless of a family’s ability to pay. Revenue from program services – primarily reimbursements from Medicaid – provides the lion’s share of our operating budget. However, they do not nearly cover all our costs. On average, parents’ insurance and government assistance pay $74 less per session than the actual cost of treatment. That means, every time our therapists help a child walk, speak or learn to hold their mom or dad’s hand, Schreiber loses money.

The Kids’ Care Fund is designed to serve as both a long- and short-term savings account to meet these uncompensated costs. Schreiber has always promised that no child will be turned away. Help us keep that promise. Become a Schreiber Hero today. Click here to donate to the Kids’ Care Fund.
