Since 1989, Brain Injury Services (BIS) has taken a leadership role in developing community-based services for residents of Northern Virginia, Fredericksburg, and the surrounding counties who have experienced a brain injury. BIS takes pride in serving over 600 children, adults, and families each year who have suffered the life-altering effects of a brain injury. Our mission is to help survivors build the skills and confidence they need to lead a productive and fulfilling life.
In collaboration with individual donors, corporate partners, foundations and private funders, Brain Injury Services is able to leverage their funding with government funding to create and implement unique services and expand our reach to more individuals who have experienced a brain injury. Brain Injury Services is funded in part by state general funds appropriated by the Virginia General Assembly and administered by the Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services.
