The Pacific Stroke Association (PSA) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to reduce the incidence of stroke through education and to help alleviate the devastating aftermath of stroke by providing support programs for stroke survivors and family caregivers.
PSA publishes a Resource Directory, which is a comprehensive guide for stroke survivors, their caregivers, and clinicians. It is provided free of charge to stroke survivors who contact our office.
Bi-annually, the PSA Resource Directory is updated to ensure the most up-to-date listings information. The process is beginning in July for the 2017-18 Directory.
Working at the PSA office, the PSA Community Resource Specialist intern/volunteer will contact organizations to update listings, and research potential new listings.
