As medical technology, safety and trauma care have improved, more and more people survive brain injury but face a lifetime of physical, behavioral and cognitive impairments requiring ongoing structure, support and services. More than 150,000 Georgians live with life-long disabilities due to brain injury, with more than 70,000 people injured each year with traumatic brain injuries. This number does not include our veterans or acquired brain injuries such as stroke or tumor.
Brain Injury Association of Georgia is the only statewide nonprofit organization committed to meeting the special needs of the survivors and their families. We offer hope, help and support through a myriad of critically needed programs and services in addition to public awareness and educational activities. Without access to information, resources, support programs and education thousands of Georgian’s will not be able to receive the services they need for optimal recovery, independence and reintegration into community life.
Your support can make a difference in the lives of families, children, veterans
