Founded in 2004 - Supporting Brain Injured Survivors and their Families for 13 Years

 March is Brain Injury Awareness Month!

BRIDGES is a Northern Kentucky Brain Injury Support Group established in April 2004 at the request of numerous brain injured survivors and their families searching for support, education, resources and advocacy.

The acronym of BRIDGES means BRain Injury Demands Guidance Education and Support.

BRIDGES was incorporated in May 2008 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and has a Board of Directors to oversee its operation.

BRIDGES partners with organizations, such as Brain Injury Alliance of Kentucky (BIAK), Gateway Rehabilitation Hospital and HealthSouth Northern Kentucky Rehabilitation Hospital to raise brain injury awareness and expand our support and educational resources.
