Your Goals
Our Mission


Welcome to the Special Tree Alumni Club

At Special Tree we are certainly proud of all the people we serve and especially those of you who once called Special Tree your home, and now live more independently or in a new living situation with family or friends. Although you are no longer participating in rehabilitation at Special Tree, we are still very interested in knowing how you are doing. We also want to continue to help you achieve real satisfaction and success in your life.

As one of Michigan's leading brain injury rehabilitation providers, we are proud of our rich history and look forward to continued growth and improvement in the years to come.

That is why we created OASIS —the Office for Alumni Services and Individual Supports. As a person who has previously been served by a Special Tree program, or as a participant of our Outpatient Services, you are eligible to enjoy a FREE membership in the Special Tree Alumni Club. The Alumni Club will be a way for you to keep in touch with us as well as a way for us to continue to serve you.

If you choose to participate, your Alumni Club Membership includes:

  • A copy of our Special Edition newsletter with a special "Alumni" corner.
  • Access to Special Tree through a 1-800 telephone number and voice mail box with all calls returned promptly (not for emergency calls)
  • Opportunities to participate in Special Tree events including several social activities each year
  • Referrals to community services that you may need including legal assistance, help obtaining employment, and continuing medical services
  • Internet access to information, events, and services through this web site
  • Deals on Special Tree apparel and other gear
  • New opportunities, including consumer advisory panels, to assist Special Tree in improving services to Alumni and to current clients

And the catch is …there is no catch. Your membership in the Special Tree Alumni Club is totally free. If you require additional treatment, rehabilitation services or care, we can help you arrange for payment through your insurance provider. However, your participation in the Alumni Club is purely voluntary and at no cost to you.

If you are interested in learning more about the new Special Tree Alumni Club, call or email our Alumni Club Director, Jim Hankamp. He'll be happy to talk with you on the phone or meet with you in person–whatever is the easiest way for us to keep in touch with you–to let you know more about the club.

If you didn't get your Special Tree Alumni t-shirt and would like to, email Jim.
