Brain Injury Association of Austin
Our chapter started in the early 80s by families with individuals with a brain injury, and was expanded by professionals helping build the chapter. We started small meetings in a library, and ended up building to the point where the group was so loud, the needed another location. The organization met in several other locations till Charlene Crump offered a place at her facility, Mary Lee Foundation, to meet once a month. Our chapter has been led by survivors, family members and professionals in the field since the beginning.
Our chapter has been involved with many fundraising events for disabilities, brain injury awareness, and even published a cookbook that was the idea of a brain injury survivor. We also participate in conferences for TBI and continue to encourage spreading awareness.
