Our Mission, Values and Vision

The mission of The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center is to provide quality brain injury rehabilitation services to individuals with brain injury to assist them in maximizing their abilities. Our goal is to enhance opportunities for individuals with brain injury to participate in their communities at the highest possible level.

It is our philosophy that people served by The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center are, first and foremost, people with abilities. We believe that all individuals are capable of change when provided services appropriate to their needs. We strongly believe that the brain can continue healing and improving throughout a person's life. We believe that each individual has the right to proceed toward increased levels of independence and responsibility within his or her community.

We know that positive family support is an important part of successful brain injury rehabilitation. We encourage positive family support throughout each facet of a person's rehabilitation, with the ultimate goal being successful independence.
