Stephanie &

Virginia Supportive Housing

Advocacy Member

Stephanie is the Program Manager of the Brain Injury Program at Virginia Supportive Housing (VSH). She has been at VSH since its inception in 2005 and has spent the majority of her professional career working with people with brain injuries. “Advocacy is so important because we have such an under served population of Virginians in need of services for their brain injuries, and housing in a lot of cases. I have been fortunate enough to see, and be a part of, how specialized brain injury case management and stable housing can make a difference in someone’s life. The services we advocate for survivors of brain injury produce hope for the people we help, and the ones we hope to be able to help in the future,” said Stephanie.
