Who We Are

Hope After Brain Injury: A non-profit, faith-based organization devoted to educating, equipping, and encouraging anyone affected by brain injury.

Together, survivors of brain injury, caregivers/families, and the medical community advance hope and spread awareness of brain injury.

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.”

Mission Statement

The mission of Hope After Brain Injury is two-fold: 1) to train mental health professionals to effectively counsel brain injury survivors and families; 2) to demonstrate coping skills for brain injury survivors and caregivers through participation in support groups, seminars, and social activities.

Vision Statement

Our vision is to partner brain injury survivors and their caregivers with one another and to collaborate with healthcare professionals who provide services addressing emotional, cognitive, and vocational counseling needed for continued recovery.

Core Values

We believe in the…

  • Sanctity of human life in that we are all created in the image of God
  • Importance of outpatient counseling as key to continued recovery
  • Access to education and community resources as key to independent living
  • Need for patience and understanding for brain injury survivors and their caregivers
  • Respect due for each endeavor towards advocacy
  • Integrity, honesty and ethical behavior that guides all our services and practice
  • Acknowledgment that brain injury survivors and caregivers are true experts
  • Dedication of healthcare professionals to improve the quality of life of brain injury survivors and their caregivers
