Ramadan Fundraiser: Brain Injury Services
Organized by: Tina-Irfan Nawaz
Since 1989, Brain Injury Services (BIS) has taken a leadership role in developing community based services for residents of Northern Virginia and surrounding counties who have experienced a brain injury. BIS takes pride in serving over 500 survivors and their families each year.
From the beginning our core values, (partnerships, respect, catalyst, integrity and cost-effective) contributed to the focus on quality and value in attempting to meet the needs of individuals who have survived a traumatic event in their lives and move forward. To that end, BIS meets this by providing specialized client-directed case management services, day programs, supported living, and innovative support services that are either provided in-house or through contracted services. These support services may include:
-Community support services
-Client volunteer placement program
BIS has a long history of “firsts” in Virginia including developing a Brain Injury Case Management Program for Children and Adolescents. Along with our direct service delivery to this population, BIS provides professionals in the community education about brain injury, prevention activities and advocacy. BIS is CARF accredited which represents our commitment to continually improve our services and meet high standards in service delivery. Brain Injury Services is funded in part by state general funds appropriated by the Virginia General Assembly and administered by the Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services.
