Survivors of Traumatic Brain Injury (“TBI”) face months, years and, in many cases, even a lifetime of rehabilitation. Your generous donation will support TBI survivors through their rehabilitation journeys. Your donation will be used to provide expert therapy that will improve the health of the survivors mind and body by providing the funding directed to HIANN member programs; including cognitive rehabilitation, physical fitness training, nutrition and cooking classes, recreational activities and social events. This is what you can make happen with a grant of $1,000 to $10,000:

$1,000: Enables 5 survivors to receive online cognitive training, a tablet and technical support for 1 year. Or, enables 50 survivors to participate in 2 art therapy classes. Or, enables HIANN to sponsor 5 brain injury prevention events where volunteers (including TBI survivors, their families, and care givers) distribute free bicycle helmets to elementary school children.

$2,500: Enables 20 survivors to experience 4 nutrition and cooking classes to assist these survivors toward a goal of improved brain health through healthy eating habits.

$5,000: Enables 25 survivors to participate in 48 physical fitness training classes to assist these survivors toward a goal of physical rehabilitation and independence.

$10,000: Enables all HIANN survivors to participate in the aforemenetioned programs and other events, including support group meetings, group outings, transportation and other educational classes to expand programming for head injury survivors.

Your compassionate donation includes a HIANN membership and an invitation to our annual picnic for you and your family.
