We are pleased to continue two support groups in 2024

We are excited to offer two groups: the Kitsap Brain Injury Support Group and the TBI klatch

During 2024 our Kitsap Brain Injury Support Group is changing schedule. The meeting time for this meeting will be changed to 1 PM tp 2:30 PM to prepare for the new Skookum facility. As we seems to be trouble finding a local facilitator our monthly groups will remain online using Zoom. A meeting topic will be distributed before the meeting giving everyone ample time to familiarize themselves with the material.

We are pleased to be continuing the TBI Klatch in 2024

The weekly TBI Klatch meetings are small online Zoom gatherings to check in with other survivors, caregivers and family, share experiences and chat over a morning beverage.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

As most of you know Bo has facilitated the weekly TBI Klatch support group since its inception (about three years). Due to the combination of Bo's aging and needing to reduce his efforts, we are confronted with the inevitable situation of finding volunteers, reducing the number of groups, or shutting it down entirely. We have witnessed that facilitating groups seems to accelerate personal recoveries. For this reason, we want to continue the group to cultivate this added benefit by training and mentoring new facilitators with Bo’s help. We need multiple facilitators (four or more) to each do one meeting per month and spread the workload and time commitment.

Kitsap Brain Injury is seeking volunteers to facilitate one Zoom meeting per month on Monday mornings at 10 a.m. Our goal is to develop a team (4 or more) of peer-to-peer facilitators with different voices, perspectives, skills, and topics for regular meetings of the TBI Klatch.

Qualifications:

Lived experience dealing with TBI (survivor, caregiver, health care professional, or family/friend)

Requires basic computer skills and internet access

Rewards:

Give back to the TBI community by helping others

Facilitator training, mentoring, and will support provided

Facilitators report personal growth and learning

$50/meeting stipend

Schedules flexible

Step One - Get online Access

Need internet access?

With the roll out of our support groups being conducted online we need to ensure our brain injury survivors have access to the internet in their home. Here are the two main companies in our area that offer internet access at reduced rates. The primary eligibility requirement is that the applicants use for public assistance programs.

You can choose either Comcast for cable internet OR Centurylink for DSL internet. They both cost around $10/month.
