The mission of the Hickok Center for Brain Injury is to provide a safe, supportive environment that encourages people with brain injuries and other neurological challenges to design and direct their own life journey.
The Hickok Center for Brain Injury, Inc. was incorporated in Rochester, New York in 1989 as the Rochester Foundation for Persons with Brain Injury, Inc., with the goal of starting a Center for people with brain injuries. By April of 1996, the Ray Hickok Center, a program of the Rochester Foundation for Persons with Brain Injury, began to admit members to the French Road location. In 2001, the Center moved to a small space in Village Gate Square. The name was officially changed to the Hickok Center for Brain Injury, Inc. in 2002. As the number of members increased, the center again moved to a larger space at Village Gate in 2003. Again in 2005, the center expanded, leasing additional space at Village Gate.
In April of 2006, that goal of owning our own building became a reality. The center purchased a building on 114 South Union Street in Rochester, NY. We finally have a place of our own.
Currently, the Hickok Center for Brain Injury provides the following services:
• Service Coordination
• Structured Day/Day Habilitation
• Independent Living Skills Training
• Community Integration Counseling
• Supported Employment services
Through the dedication of members, staff, volunteers, the Board of Directors and all of our supporters, the Hickok Center for Brain Injury will continue to provide a place where people with brain injuries are encouraged to meet their life goals in a safe, supportive and respectful way.
