With many office employees still working completely or partially from home, some businesses have a lot more office space than they need.

Back in 2017, the Lancaster County marketing company, Listrak opened a 93,000-square-foot headquarters at 100 West Millport Road in Warwick Township near Lititz.

Listrak, which provides email, text and behavioral marketing solutions for more than 1,000 retailers and brands, is now using a hybrid work model and has decided to find tenants to fill space it isn’t using.

“The events of the past two years have caused commercial real estate owners to reevaluate their spaces, and Listrak was no exception,” Listrak CEO Ross Kramer, said in a news release. “Flexibility is the theme now. Given our capacity to offer three work options and remain successful, we determined that we do not need the entire space in our 93,000 square-foot headquarters and have elected to bring in additional tenants.”

One of those tenants will be the Now I Can Foundation Northeast, a nonprofit organization that provides therapy to children with disabilities. The Now I Can Foundation is based in Utah and will lease 14,000-square-feet of space.

Kramer’s niece was born with cerebral palsy and has received intensive therapy at Now I Can’s Utah location for the past five years.

“Her results have been nothing short of transformative,” Kramer said. “Now, we’re proud to help bring this special model of therapy to the region. Some might think it unusual that we’re bringing in someone who is not in the eCommerce industry or in any way affiliated with our business. However, this relationship absolutely aligns with our corporate pillar of investing in and giving back to our communities.”

Kramer’s sister, Allison Ebersole, is president of Now I Can Foundation Northeast.

Now I Can Foundation provides intensive physical therapy to treat children with cerebral palsy and other neuromuscular disorders. Now I Can therapists treat clients for four hours per day, five days per week.

“Studies have shown that a three-week session helps children realize the same goals it would usually take one full year of traditional physical therapy to achieve,” says Tracey Christensen, Now I Can’s founder and executive director, said in a news release. “This focused approach provides time to practice activities of daily living such as sitting, standing and walking.”

The organization offers a number of treatments including manual therapy, the Universal Exercise Unit, Kinesiotaping and TheraSuit, which includes a vest, shorts, knee and elbow pads, gloves, shoe attachments and hat. All pieces are interlocked by bungee-type cords which assist with proper body alignment.

Now I Can clinics offer financial assistance to patients.

The project contractor is Pelger Engineering & Construction.

Now I Can Northeast hopes to be fully operational by September 2022. This is the organization’s first location in Pennsylvania. The facility is about 40 minutes from Harrisburg.
