Latest News

The pandemic affected us all in the past year. We switched to online groups early on, and I am sorry to say that our group was one of the few support groups to survive the pandemic. Last March, due to the pandemic, the Brain Injury Alliance of Washington discontinued fiscal support to external groups. In June, we began a founding committee to begin formalizing Kitsap Brain Injury to become a nonprofit 501c3.

The latest information is that long-time support group member Donovan Viet recently joined the founding committee. Donovan was recently awarded his Ph.D. in education. Let’s all welcome Dr. Donovan! With this addition, we had to update our information with the state. The turnaround on this update is about seven weeks. Once completed, we will register as a 501c3. The 501c3 process normally takes six months to a year.

November 2nd update - We are still waiting for the paperwork to be returned. We anticipate that we will get it back in toward the end of the month. YAY!

Hope to see everybody soon!

Giving the gift of warmth this winter

Research conducted by the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada) has identified that approximately one out of every two homeless people are brain injury survivors.

As the weather is getting harsher and temperatures are colder, our brain injury survivors want to help. We have identified the best way to do that is through donating blankets. Coats, etc. to local area community organizations.

We have identified these organization for you to safely donate and spead warmth this winter

Due to social distancing guildlines for the COVID-19 virus the planning committee has suspended all face to face meetings until further notice.
