The Magee Recreation

Resource guide

The Magee Recreation Resource Guide is a community resource guide compiled by Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. Hopefully, you will find the information contained in this guide useful as you independently pursue leisure activities. Unfortunately, this guide is not a complete listing, as there may be programs that are unfamiliar to us.

If you would like to inform us of a program that is not included here, we will consider it for inclusion in future updates. Magee is not affiliated with the agencies listed here, and we cannot guarantee the quality of the program, services or product of these agencies. Please use your own judgment in using this information.

If you have any questions or would like more detailed information on an individual program, please contact Meg Rider, Guest Relations and Volunteer Services Manager by emailing or call 215-587-3186.

Please use the search function to find information on specific topics. For example type in “Grant” in the search bar to search for grant opportunities.

Another resource for everyone is Aunt Bertha. Aunt Bertha’s network connects people seeking help and verified social care providers that serve them. Thousands of nonprofits and social care providers serve their communities. But for most people, navigating the system to get help has been difficult, time consuming, and frustrating. Searching for resources is free

We do this by offering grants of up to $5,000 to people throughout the United States and Canada who have secured the majority of the funds needed, but require the final amount to complete their purchase. Our founder, Ralph Braun, believed that everyone has the right to accessible transportation and that is why he created this foundation: to help people achieve their dreams of mobility.All Disabilities
