Sandy McCloskey Memorial Fund
A legacy to be proud of and a legacy that will stand up for children with disabilities for years to come.
It is with extreme sadness that we announce the passing of Sandra N. McCloskey, our Founder and President.
In the past 19 years, volunteers, supporters and the community have helped Quest become a world-class Outpatient Therapy Clinic where children’s live are changed, families are strengthened and children receive the therapy and building blocks they need for success in life and school. From a mere six children receiving therapy in a rented horse pasture, to the indoor arena and facility that we have today, it is because the community, friends, families and donors have always stood behind Quest.
What started as a dream for Sandy, has become a wonderful legacy for the future. Starting with only one therapist, to now having fulltime therapists and 15 contracted therapists – we now serve the entire Delaware Valley. Our staff provides early intervention in the home and community as well – we are touching so many lives!
Children are at the heart of all that we do. It is an honor to support and provide services for our children as we improve their lives, build on their strengths, and help them benefit from the healing power of a horse.
First steps, first words, first smiles. These are all the things we witness every day. The future continues to look bright for every child at Quest!
The Quest mission has brought together the community, donors, corporations, universities, service groups and numerous volunteers (age 12 to 86) that we could not survive without. Please join the team at Quest, as we continue to build on the dream and pave the way for the long term success of our programs and organization.
Quest will continue to build each child’s potential, help children gain skills and lifetime rewards – One therapy visit at a time!
Karen Chamberlain, one of our long-term therapists has been serving as Interim Director, and will continue to do so until a replacement is found.
