A Message From The Foundation President

Since 1889, patients and their families have come to Sheltering Arms looking for hope and healing, often following very difficult life events that are physically, emotionally and financially overwhelming. Sheltering Arms is the type of organization that exists to help people regardless of their situation. The courageous idea of our founder, Rebekah Peterkin, as well as the support of our community, have allowed Sheltering Arms to keep that promise as we provide a full continuum of rehabilitative care and wellness services and help people find the Power to Overcome.

Generosity, compassion and a commitment to excellence have kept us going for 125 years. Now more than ever, we are excited to launch the next 125 years with renewed zeal to push the boundaries of rehabilitative technology and life-changing innovations. We are dedicated to expanding educational opportunities for our staff of physicians, therapists and nurses, while conducting more groundbreaking research to achieve even greater success with the patients we serve.

Your Giving Power will allow us to acquire the tools and expertise that have helped our patients recover abilities and conquer challenges once thought impossible. It is an honor to help people find the Power to Overcome. Thank you for championing Sheltering Arms in support of what the future holds.

With these expectations, it is important to our Development Team that we learn more about your interests and share ways for you and your family to make a significant impact on the lives of our patients moving forward. Please do not hesitate to contact any member of our team to discuss the opportunities to support Sheltering Arms and the patients we serve.
