Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Brain Injury Support Program

Our Brain Injury Support program is designed to assist the brain injury survivor in successfully returning to his or her at the highest possible level of functioning, while also providing information and referral services. We complete the spectrum of care that begins when a brain injury survivor receives acute care in the hospital, followed by inpatient rehabilitation, and then Jodi House when they have returned to their homes. Our programs focus on community reintegration and vocational supported services, assisting our members in successfully returning to the workforce if/when they are able.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. Community Reintegration: for survivors of acquired and traumatic brain injuries to graduate from our Brain Injury Support program after successfully meeting the goals they/their families set at intake and return to their communities at their highest possible level of functioning.
2. Vocational Support Services: to provide tools and resources to facilitate brain injury survivors in returning to the workforce. Our goal is for 2/3 or more of those entering our vocational program to complete it and obtain employment in the community within 6 months.
3. To improve the quality of life of those that we serve as measured by the Quality of Life After Brain Injury (QOLIBRI) and Mayo Portland Adaptability Inventory.
