About Us

HISTORY

BRIDGES is a Northern Kentucky Brain Injury Support Group established in April 2004 at the request of numerous brain injured survivors searching for support, education and resources. 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 corporation to promote brain injury awareness education and raise funds for the advocacy of brain injured survivors and their families. BRIDGES has a Board of Directors to oversee its operation.



BRIDGES works closely with:


MISSION

BRIDGES, Inc.'s mission is to provide education, awareness, support, community outreach and avenues of advocacy to brain injured survivors, families, caregivers and healthcare professionals.

Pursuant to our overall mission, BRIDGES has monthly support group meetings for brain injured survivors and their families. Guests of the families are welcome as part of our outreach to members of the community. Speakers are often part of this activity bringing issues important to our members for discussion. We host a professional educational conference annually where presenters bring cutting edge information on brain injury research for diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing rehabilitation. We are one of the few organizations that welcomes TBI survivors and their families to participate with professionals at the conference.
