I have worked in Outpatient Rehab for most of my 25 year career with Integris. I have given to Rehab every year since You and I began because I see the impact that the therapist make on patients lives daily. I did not know at the time that the Adventure Loft that was built for the Pediatric Program at Jim Thorpe through the You and I program would have such a major impact in my life. I have a grandson that is currently receiving OT and Speech and has benefited from this endeavor as we sought help with his sensory issues.
I started giving to Arcadia Trails because I am affected personally by mental health diagnosis’ for several people in my family. Also seeing the need for a facility like this with all that is going on in society today. People who struggle with mental health issues need to know that they have a place to turn to when they need the help. Knowing that my donation along with those of others can impact lives makes me believe we can make a difference.
I share this because we do not know what type of impact we are making until it hits home with us on a personal level. Just knowing that these funds are going to a cause that will impact lives!!! Lives of those, just like it says “You & I”!
