The Benjamin S. Gerson Family Resource Center was developed through the generosity of the children of Benjamin S. Gerson. Mr. Gerson was diagnosed with polio in 1953 and treated at the MetroHealth Medical Center. He attributed the care he received at MetroHealth with allowing him to return to a productive life after his diagnosis. The Gerson Center, dedicated in November 2004, links people with disabilities to the educational information, support services, and community agencies needed to enhance their quality of life.
The mission of the Benjamin S. Gerson Family Resource Center is to serve the community by:
- Establishing cooperative relationships with local, regional, and national organizations to provide prompt communication, information, and education for people with disabilities, as well as their families.
- Providing a seamless transition from therapies to community reintegration and a return to productive living.
- Acting as an ongoing resource center for the community in the area of awareness, research, and access to services for people with disabilities.
