Mission Statement

Jodi House empowers brain injury survivors and their families to reconnect, rebuild and move forward together within our community.

Description

A brain injury can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime. Whether due to an auto accident, sports injury, stroke, tumor, or one of countless other causes, chances are you, or someone you know, has been affected by a brain injury.

During the chaotic and confusing days, weeks, or months in the ER, hospital, or inpatient rehabilitation, it is extremely difficult to comprehend what life with a brain injury will be like. Yet, once the medical professionals have finished their lifesaving work, survivors and their families are usually left to cope on their own with the life-changing and, often, lifelong emotional, behavioral, and social effects of the injury.

That’s where Jodi House steps in. Jodi House helps brain injury survivors integrate into the community to thrive and achieve their goals.

Jodi House is a community-based nonprofit with program consist of:

Community Integration Day Program

Vocation Supportive Services

Resource and Referral Program

Community Education
