Support Schofield's Legacy of Caring

In the early 1900's, Dr. Jennie Schofield began her service to the community by lending wheelchairs to individuals in the community who could not afford to buy them. She and a group of dedicated volunteers raised funds to begin the work of the Wheel Chair Guild, and in 1910 founded the Wheel Chair Home.

Former residents and patients, their families and friends often donate in thanks for the assistance they have received from our programs, in remembrance of their loved ones, or in honor of our staff and volunteers. They help us to carry on Dr. Schofield's mission. Won't you join them?
