The Shield Institute
Celebrating 100 Years of Service!

As the entire world continues to grapple with the ongoing pandemic, The Shield continues to provide services, supports, and education for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

For nearly 100 years we have succeeded in our mission of serving the underserved and representing the underrepresented. In the wake of our nation’s financial and health crisis, the funds that provide for our programs are quickly being stripped away. The ability to continue to fulfill our mission is dependent on your support.

Whether providing remote services, hybrid-instruction, home visits or safe community outings, our dedicated staff maintain strong connections with the people we support, the young children we educate, and all their families.

During this season of giving, please find it in your heart, to give generously to The Shield Institute. What we do at The Shield would not be possible without people like you. In our 100-year history, The Shield has never experienced a funding crisis like this. A gift in any amount will be more meaningful this year, as we work to preserve the life-changing programs we have built over a century!

We know that together we will overcome these difficult times. Your help today will ensure a brighter future for the people we support at The Shield Institute.
