Introduction

The Brain Injury Services Fredericksburg Community Day Program is a client-directed, community-based program that is designed to meet the unique needs of the survivors living in a mixed, small, urban, and rural area. The purpose of the Community Services program is to provide innovative services and supports to empower survivors.

The goal of the program is two-fold:

  • To provide services that support program members’ individual goals in a group setting.
  • Provide opportunities for program members to transition to meaningful and productive activities in their community.

The Day Program has four components:

Volunteering/Vocational Skills:

Multiple offsite locations & partnerships with local agencies, such as:

  • Food distribution
  • Community gardening
  • Animal care
  • Donation packets
  • Library resource management
  • Local nature & Wildlife projects

Wellness:

We support the health and well-being of survivors through the following active and restive programs:

  • Adaptive yoga
  • Guided meditation
  • Adaptive exercise classes
  • A dedicated onsite meditation/stress reduction space for individual use

Independent Living Skills:

We provide a variety of task learning activities, such as:

  • Culinary meal preparation
  • Nutrition workshops
  • Basic computer skills
  • Organizational projects
  • Educational workshops

Social & Peer Support:

We enable survivors to work and learn together with their peers through the following:

  • Restaurant outings
  • Recreational events (Movies, Bowling, Picnics)
  • Community open houses
  • Educational outings

Individual Services:
