New Video Explains Why Shepherd Center is a Place Where Hope is Restored
Patients and families receive care and support for life beyond spinal cord or brain injury.
Shepherd Center co-founder Alana Shepherd says, "Shepherd Center is a place where hope begins again." Many patients and families who have experienced spinal cord or brain injury rehabilitation at Shepherd Center have indeed found their hope restored. They have discovered life beyond their injury or illness.
Restoring this hope is at the heart of Shepherd Center's mission, which is "to help people with a temporary or permanent disability caused by injury or disease, rebuild their lives with hope, independence and dignity, advocating for their full inclusion in all aspects of community life while promoting safety and injury prevention."
This new video from Shepherd Center captures that hope. For more information on rehabilitation services at Shepherd Center, visit shepherd.org.
