Mission Statement

The Brain Injury Connection's mission is to enrich the lives of people affected by an acquired brain injury (ABI) through education and connection to community resources.

Description

The Brain Injury Connection (BIC) is a 501(c)(3) organization located in Alameda, California in the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California.

The BIC’s mission is to enrich the lives of people affected by an acquired brain injury (ABI) through education and connection to community resources.

"Connection" is reflected in the BIC's logo designed by Amanda Wong while a student at the Art Institute of California - San Francisco .

Our ultimate goals include meeting the direct needs of those affected by brain injury and educating the public at-large.

The BIC was incorporated because of the Founder’s Experience After a Traumatic Brain Injury and the experiences of many of her peers who participate in the East Bay Brain Injury (EBBI) Support Group.

Go to the Founder's Vision to learn what she would like the BIC to become for the brain injury community.

Many good programs providing services to the brain injury community are around, but they are sporadic throughout California, the US and in other countries.

All programs and services of the BIC will be geared to meet the direct needs of the ABI community. Ideally, premier programs and services offered in other communities would be emulated where they are needed.

The initial programs and services of the BIC include:

1. An informational, educational and community website. The website is dedicated to helping those affected by acquired brain injury (ABI) by providing an online community for survivors and caregivers, professionals and others interested in preventing brain injuries or learning more about brain injury to connect, network and educate the public at-large about ABI related issues.

We'd like those affected by brain injury (survivors, caregivers, family members & friends), the professionals who specialize in working with the brain injury community, and those who have an interest in preventing brain injury to join the BIC's online community.

2. A hardcopy and online publication where the brain injury community guides the content. Professionals share their expertise in laymen’s terms and survivors and caregivers share their experiences.
