Shepherd Center named Beacham Q2 charity recipient

Beacham Gives Back, the quarterly charitable giving initiative of Beacham & Company, REALTORS®, has selected Shepherd Center of Atlanta as its’ second quarter 2018 recipient charity.

Shepherd Center is a private, not-for-profit hospital specializing in medical treatment, research and rehabilitation for people with spinal cord injury, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, spine and chronic pain, and other neuromuscular conditions. Located in Buckhead, Shepherd was founded in 1975 and is ranked by U.S. News & World Report among the top 10 rehabilitation hospitals in the nation.

In its more than four decades, Shepherd Center has grown from a six-bed rehabilitation unit to a world-renowned, 152-bed hospital that treats more than 900 inpatients, 575 day program patients and more than 7,100 outpatients each year. Patients travel from across the nation – and even the globe – to Shepherd Center for its innovative brand of neurorehabilitation.

Beacham Gives Back is a charitable giving initiative of Beacham & Company that was started in March 2017 by one of Beacham’s agents. The program is believed to be the first of its kind – at least among Atlanta real estate companies. Recipient charities are not chosen by management but by the agents and staff of Beacham by popular vote each calendar quarter. In less than a year, Beacham Gives Back has donated nearly $100,000 to local charities including Our House, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, and the Emory Winship Cancer Institute. Prior to Beacham Gives Back, the firm has made donations over the years to Ronald McDonald House, the Forward Arts Foundation, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

Shepherd Center was nominated by Beacham agent Kyle Baumann who will serve as fundraising captain.
