PRO Rehabilitation Services focuses its philanthropic efforts on supporting the Colleen Shea Children’s Foundation. The Foundation was established in February 2002 to honor the memory of Collen Shea and to achieve her dreams of making a positive difference in the lives of those she touched. The mission of the Foundation is to help serve the needs of children through charitable fund-raising and community service. The Board of Directors is composed of friends, family and business associates of Colleen who recognize the love Colleen showed for children and her desire to be a positive influence in their lives.

Colleen Shea

Colleen Shea was a young, bright and enthusiastic woman who possessed a great love for children. Born October 26, 1973, she was a native of Pittston where she lived with her parents, Pat and Nancy, and her brother, Patrick and sister, Kim. Colleen attended Pittston Area High School where she graduated in the top ten of her class in 1991. At the age of 15, she began employment at a local supermarket and, along with various babysitting jobs, was able to work her way through college.

She received her B.S. in Accounting from King’s College, Wilkes-Barre in 1995. During her senior year of college, she began an accounting internship and continued her career in public accounting with Prociak & Associates, L.L.C. Colleen was very active in her parish, Blessed Sacrament Church in Hughestown, where she also served as a religious education instructor. She had a great love for her brother and sister, and played a special role in the lives of her close friends’ children. Colleen was also very active in many community organizations offering her time for volunteer work and serving on various boards and committees.

On October 19, 2001, Colleen’s life was cut short when she was the victim of a tragic automobile accident. The Colleen Shea Children’s Foundation was established in her memory to make a difference in the lives of children.
