New Beginnings Community Center is a 501c3 not for profit organization whose goal is to help develop state of the art long-term rehabilitation services to survivors of traumatic brain injury and other cognitive and physical disorders.
In order to help those who are on a journey of recovery, New Beginnings will help facilitate a holistic approach to survivors of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other physical and cognitive disorders, offer support for their families, and raise awareness for the needs of this growing community.
*2013* - New Beginnings is in the process of establishing a home for Veterans and Civilians with TBI called "Brendan House" located in Riverhead, NY
New Beginnings Community Center is committed to an ongoing campaign to raise awareness of TBI and other physical and cognitive disabilities and to help develop rehabilitation and management resources currently lacking in these areas. We are also committed to:
Developing a centralized list of resources for TBI survivors and offering them and their family members referrals to appropriate licensed professionals,
Offering training and educational opportunities for survivors, families and professionals who are part of the New Beginnings community,
Developing research into effective strategies and techniques for long-term rehabilitation from TBI and other physical and cognitive disabilities, and
Advocating for the needs and resources of the members of our community.
