The Schofield Story
Dr. Jennie M. Schofield was a graduate of Fredonia State Normal School and of the Kirksville, Missouri College of Osteopathy in 1906. Dr. Schofield moved to Buffalo with her husband William in 1894. She began her service to the community by loaning wheelchairs to those who could not afford them. Under her leadership, together with a dedicated group of volunteers, the Wheel Chair Home was organized in 1910. Since our founding, our organization has continued to adapt and grow to meet the needs of our community.
