Who We Are
Hope after Brain Injury is a non-profit organization devoted to sharing hope with those affected by brain injury through counseling, education, and connection to community resources. We consist of brain injury survivors with their caregivers and healthcare professionals committed to the advancement of brain injury recovery.
We are a faith-based organization who practices the truth spoken by the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”
Services and Resources
Hope after Brain Injury offers online and personal support for brain injury survivors and their families. We have a weekly blog that highlights aspects of living with brain injury. Also, take a peek at our Hope! magazine for an inside glimpse of those living with brain injury. You will find stories from fellow survivors and family members; tips for managing various issues such as memory loss, fatigue, and anger; links to community resources; and perspectives from professionals committed to the advancement of brain injury awareness and recovery.
Hope After Brain Injury ~ Welcome To Our Site
Welcome Home! You are among friends, family, and professionals who are committed to easing the burden of brain injury through counseling, education and connection to community resources. We offer the hope of recovery to the 6.3 million Americans affected by brain injury each year. Although the physical injuries are significant, the emotional and cognitive effects of traumatic brain injury are the most difficult.
We partner with healthcare professionals (licensed professional counselors, psychiatrists, social workers) who are dedicated to helping with these ‘not-so-obvious-to-the-eye’ effects of brain injury. We extend patience and understanding to all those affected by brain injury. You are not alone.
