Each holiday season, we invite all of the children in households with kids being treated at Schwab Rehab, not just patients. At the Holiday Party, Every child gets two gifts (one fun, one practical), and Mom gets a $20 Target gift card. Many moms tell us we’re the only holiday celebration their children have. Last year we hosted 600+ kids.
Children with Adapted Mobility Play is the only free summer day camp for disabled kids in Cook County. We provide camp for 25 kids 8–14, including transportation, activities, and a closing picnic to celebrate. Camp Chicago brings kids outside to play on their own terms, and that’s hugely empowering.
We raise money for the kids of KidsRehab at Schwab Rehabilitation, infants to teens. Our kids are predominately low income, many have been violently injured. Schwab is in North Lawndale, one of Chicago’s poorest communities. Schwab is one of only two rehabilitation hospitals in Chicago; we serve the kids who have the least.
