Brain injury is a 'pause' button.
We help survivors and families press 'play' again.
Since 1985, Schurig Center for Brain Injury Recovery has been the only nonprofit in our area providing an array of supportive services designed to help survivors and their families live the best life after an acquired brain injury.
Life-Enhancing Rehabilitation, Connection & Education
We pick up where the healthcare system leaves off to help people adjust to life changes; regain essential skills; and, build new lives of value and purpose. Scholarships are offered for those living on a low income to ensure everyone has access to care. Our services are offered in a welcoming community center surrounded by a beautiful garden and we welcome people from throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
... Everyone deserves a good quality of life.
... In the healing power of the arts and community.
... That unconditional compassion, innovative collaboration and unbridled generosity can make anything possible.
... In the power of creativity and fun. Not just as a powerful trauma healing tool that stimulates the brain, but as an engine that fuels our staff, board and community partners.
... That success is about progress, not perfection. If you are farther today than you were yesterday, we will celebrate it!
... That everyone can come as they are and be accepted.
The people Schurig Center serves are “us.”
Acquired brain injury (ABI) has many causes and is more widespread than is generally known. Brain injury does not discriminate. It can happen to anyone, at any time – from a stroke, concussion, accident, fall, sports, recreation, infection, aneurysm, tumor, heart failure, and other causes. Our clients are professionals, parents, sons and daughters, friends, neighbors, and family members – our local community. We serve adults ages 18 and up whose lives have been impacted by an ABI. We also serve their families and caregivers.
