About Us

Since 1889, patients and their families have come to Sheltering Arms looking for hope and healing, often following very difficult life events that are physically, emotionally and financially overwhelming. Sheltering Arms is the type of organization that exists to help people regardless of their situation. The courageous idea of our founder, Rebekah Peterkin, as well as the support of our community, have allowed Sheltering Arms to keep that promise as we provide a full continuum of rehabilitative care and wellness services and help people find the Power to Overcome.


Generosity, compassion and a commitment to excellence have kept us going for 125 years. Now more than ever, we are excited to launch the next 125 years with renewed zeal to push the boundaries of rehabilitative technology and life-changing innovations. We are dedicated to expanding educational opportunities for our staff of physicians, therapists and nurses, while conducting more groundbreaking research to achieve even greater success with the patients we serve.
