Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania

Goal: $500.00

Specific Need

With the current health crisis, The Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania had to cancel fundraising events. Our current specific need is to help fill the financial loss from the cancellations to help all of our programs in any way possible, big or small.

Mission

The Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania (BIAPA) is a statewide non-profit organization. The mission of the Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania is to foster a community of education, advocacy, support, and research, to maximize the quality of life for those with brain injury and their families.

Profile

BrainSTEPS School Re-Entry Program: In Crawford County Schools, BIAPA implements the BrainSTEPS program created by the PA Department of Health in 2007. BIAPA has teams in Northwest Tri-County IU #5, who are contacted when a student suffers a brain injury. The program is designed to consult with school teams and families in the development and delivery of educational services for students who have experienced a brain injury in or out of school, including sports concussions.

Brain Injury Support Groups: We provide over 50 brain injury support groups in Pennsylvania. Support groups offer open discussion, special topics, speakers, and activities. People who have sustained a brain injury, caregivers, and support persons may attend.

BIRL Brain Injury Resource Line 1-800-444-6443: BIRL is a toll-free number maintained by the Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania. It is staffed by volunteers who provide resource information to all who call including people who have sustained a brain injury, and caregivers of people with brain injury in Crawford County. Calls are assigned to a volunteer who will return the call and provide resource information.
