The Scheib Center provides mental health and mental disability services to residents in San Marcos and Hays County mainly to those without insurance and those on Medicaid. Our two service areas are: Mental Health Services and services to those with mental disabilities, which today is known as Intellectually Developmentally Disabled.
Approximately 1,800 adults and children receive regular services at Scheib. This number does not include all the family members, parents, and care givers who benefit from the counseling, education, and emotional support involved in helping their loved ones. San Marcos and Hays County benefit from having citizens with better mental health and the type of ongoing care provided by Scheib. Our goal is to continue to search for ways to assist recovery and to improve the lives of our citizens.
Local Businesses Support Scheib
We wish to express our sincerest thanks to two local retailers (Lowe's and HEB) for their recent donations. Their support is overwhelming and very much in need for our renovation of our old MCOT building into David's Activity Hall. Our Mental Health, IDD and Veteran programs will directly benefit from these generous gifts.
Lowe's Home Improvement
David's Activity Hall
Scheib Center's most pressing need is the use of a recreational room/gymnasium with a nearby, fully functioning kitchen, storage for physical therapy equipment, and additional office space for our ever growing programs involving veterans, "at-risk" juveniles, and group therapy attendees. The thirty year old, 5,000 square foot warehouse is used as a recreation room; however it has an impractical layout, cement flooring, and barely functioning air conditioning units. Additionally, the building's existing "kitchen" does not meet the needs of the staff for the IDD clients' daily lunch resulting in pre-made meals that are inconveniently carried from another building. Remodeling this warehouse to create a suitable space in which to provide our clients with essential services and programs is imperative to Scheib's continued growth.
