QLI is a private 501(c)(3) organization located on a 65-acre campus here in Omaha. Over the past thirty years, QLI has grown to be the largest specialized provider of brain and spinal cord injury rehabilitation services in the country. By blending a relentlessly inspired team of experts with a visionary model that recognizes great rehabilitation is more than the science of recovery, the results are life-changing for the individuals and families we serve.
Proceeds from the event support QLI’s Life Path Services program. The “crown jewel” of our programming, Life Path Services facilitates recovery by incorporating each client’s passions, values and identity into their therapy and care, moving the focus from devastation to hope. Sometimes it means using sports and recreation to reconnect injury survivors to those they love. Sometimes it means partnering with local businesses and community resources to help someone experience a real-world rehabilitation experience. Sometimes it means providing a scholarship for an individual who continues to make progress when their funding source stops short of the finish line. It's the reason families from over 40 states have bypassed their local and regional providers to travel right here to Nebraska, to QLI.
However, while Life Path Services is the most comprehensive, intensive and functional rehabilitation experience in the nation, it is not covered by insurance. Without your philanthropic support, success stories like Bob Gardiner’s would not be possible.
