2016 Year-End Letter from Executive Director, Karen Brown

After 20 years of working at Brain Injury Services, I continue to be humbled by the increasing demand for innovative services designed specifically for survivors of brain injury, stroke, and concussion.

Yet I remain optimistic. Day-in and day-out, I see resilient survivors taking important steps forward on their journey of recovery here at Brain Injury Services.

This past year was no different. During 2016, Brain Injury Services experienced a wonderful year of growth and advancement for our programs and organization. Moreover, the survivors who participated in our many programs and groups realized tremendous progress as well.

Here are some highlights:

600 survivors were served throughout all our programs
80 of these survivors were children
91% of clients said their life has changed in a positive direction
82% of client’s individual goals on the Individual Services Plan were accomplished
Case management services in Winchester were established with the support of DARS
Brain Injury Services was accepted into the prestigious Catalogue for Philanthropy as “One of the best small charities in the Greater Washington region”
Brain Injury Services received increased media coverage, including local newspapers and television programs across the region
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any ideas or suggestions for how Brain Injury Services can better serve our clients.

On behalf of everyone at Brain Injury Services, I hope that you and your family enjoy a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year. You are an essential piece to the work Brain Injury Services strives to provide for our community. We appreciate your continued support.
