2022: This Is Us

2023 marks BIAV’s 40th anniversary. Originally founded in 1983 because a family realized the need for information and education about brain injury, BIAV has evolved into the preeminent statewide resource for people living with a brain injury, for their families and caregivers, and for professionals. 

When I came to BIAV in 2001, we were an organization with 3 ½ employees and an annual budget of about $150,000. Today, we are a national leader in brain injury, with a staff of 8 and a budget of $1,000,000. Since our first contract with the Virginia Department of Aging and Rehabilitative Services in 1984, we have contacted more than 300,000 Virginians who have sustained a brain injury and provided them with help, hope and healing. Over just the last 5 years, we’ve directly impacted more than 107,000 people and indirectly impacted an additional 220,000 through more than 650 events and activities. 

Looking back on 2022, I am again amazed by the BIAV staff and what they get done each year, and their commitment to serving you. I am humbled by how much we’ve grown and how many people we have been able to serve. And I am grateful for the connections – with our members, our donors, our sponsors and partners, our volunteers – with YOU. 

As many of you know, I will be stepping down as BIAV’s Executive Director in 2023, so this is my last mission report. It has been an honor to be a part of your lives and to serve Virginia’s brain injury community – you have inspired me on a daily basis, given me strength for our battles, and shown me grace and offered care when it was sorely needed. I am a better person because of all of you.   

Thank you for allowing us to serve you for the last 40 years. This is us, and together, we’re pretty awesome.
