THE STORY:

This August SBI Services for Brain Injury (sbicares.org) celebrate 25 years as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit! An important next step in SBI’s growth is to become a Medi-Cal Service Provider in order to meet the emergent needs of veterans and civilians. In order for SBI to certify for Medi-Cal, we are funding increased hours for our clinical psychologist, a licensed occupational therapist and a licensed speech-language pathologist.
Equally significant is SBI’s role in the Bay Area community as the initial, no-cost, contact for people with brain injury and their loved ones. Just the other day, we had a new participant in our weekly, evening support group who was not planning to say much, he just wanted to listen. When he heard stories from some of the nearly 40 people there he became emotional and shared the many burdens he was carrying. He was on a wait-list for government services and it was clear to our clinical psychologist who facilitates the group that he needed one-on-one counseling and group support right away. Until that night at SBI, he felt there had been “no one who understood.”

As our fiscal year is coming to a close at the end of this month, we are setting a stretch goal of $50,000 for our fundraising campaign in order to accelerate and expand our services to include Medi-Cal certification with expanded staffing or extended hours for our clinical staff.
Thank you for any help you can provide in this effort!
