Provide much needed help and a smile to a survivor of brain injury!
Winter Wishes' mission is to bring hope during the holiday season to survivors of brain injury by providing a needed gift. For some that means a gift card to Walmart and for others it's a needed item like a new set of pots and pans or a blanket.
According to 2020 census data, 1 in 30 people in Virginia have a disability because of a brain injury. This puts the potential number of people in our services area as over 40,000, showing a clear need for services. Some causes of brain injury include traffic accidents, falls, heart attacks, strokes, sports injuries, and illness.
While many people receive good care in the hospital, most find once they are home, they lack supporting resources. This is even more true for many who already have limited means. Survivors of brain injuries often find upon returning home they must relearn how to do everyday activities such as grocery shopping, working, and using a cell phone. Even simply visiting with a friend can be a new challenge.
Fortunately, Brain Injury Solutions (BIS) is here to help turn tragedy into hope! Not only is BIS here to fill the huge need of support during a challenging time, BIS provides this support FREE of charge for survivors of brain injury and their families.
