The membership drive has been changed to a partnership drive. In 2017, partners helped provide more than 8,000 hours of physical, speech and occupational therapy and over $500,000 in indigent care to those in need. Partnership forms have been mailed, but they are also available at the center. For information call 330-856-2107.
