Our vision is a world where Brain Injury is prevented, and every person already affected by its impact benefits from resources that maximize his/her quality of life. 

Our mission is to increase public awareness, support, and hope for those affected by Brain Injury through education, assistance, and advocacy.

Programs include

Washington Brain Injury Resource Center: Toll-free line that Brain Injury survivors, caregivers, and family members can call if they feel stuck navigating the medical system, applying for social security benefits, developing education interventions, and much more.

Resource Management: Individuals with Brain Injury, their families, and caregivers can qualify for Resource Management. Resource Management provides clients with the option of over-the-phone or in-person assistance. Resource managers help connect people to the resources and support in their communities while working toward individualized, identified goals.

Pediatric Resource Management: Pediatric Resource Managers serve youth with Brain Injuries and their families by connecting them to educational support and medical care while assisting with applying for governmental assistance and gathering medical records.

Social Engagement Opportunities: BIAWA recognizes the valuable role of social engagement in enriching the quality of life of individuals with Brain Injury and their families and provides them with a safe space to enjoy themselves. BIAWA hosts regular social events such as a trip to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, baseball games, a holiday party, and an annual Art Show.

Brain Health & Wellness: Brain Health & Wellness classes are specifically designed to empower Brain Injury survivors, family members, and caregivers and give them the tools to take ownership of their health and well-being. Classes are held in Lynnwood and Puyallup. Brain Health & Wellness also hosts a peer mentorship program.

Outreach/Training: BIAWA provides free trainings on Brain Injury to educators, medical providers, legal professionals, and other service providers. BIAWA has been able to reach more than 27,000 individuals annually through outreach and trainings.

Academic Scholarship: BIAWA provides academic scholarships to students who are survivors of Brain Injury, as well as professionals who are committed to advances in Brain Injury knowledge.


HISTORY
The Brain Injury Alliance of Washington (BIAWA) is a small nonprofit organization that has exhibited the power to do great things. BIAWA was originally founded in 1982 as the Washington State Head Injury Foundation by family members united by a determination to create a system of support for all Washingtonians whose lives are affected by Brain Injury. Today, a cadre of volunteers, board members and staff work collaboratively to carry out the organization’s mission: to increase public awareness, support and hope for those affected by Brain Injury through education, assistance and advocacy.
