Helping Our Most Vulnerable Children Succeed With James DeBord of Schreiber Center for Pediatric Development: Episode 59
The Schreiber Center for Pediatric Development serves more than 4,000 children every year. They provide outpatient and in-home pediatric therapy services including occupational, physical, and speech-language therapy for children from birth to age 21, and in 2020 they added behavioral health services. Over their 85-year history, doctors across central Pennsylvania have referred thousands of children to their facility for life-changing services.
Schreiber cannot provide these services without the help of the community. It is their mission to provide excellent care to every child who needs them, regardless of their family's ability to pay. With low reimbursement rates from Medicaid which covers almost 95% of the client population, it is up to Schreiber to raise $1.6 million annually through philanthropy to make up the budget shortfall.
