2023 Mission Report

2023: A Year of Progress

2023 was a year filled with promise, passage, and progress for the Brain Injury Association of Virginia. While continuing to provide the important vision and leadership so many count on us for, we transitioned to a new staff leader, embraced the opportunity to restructure our staff, and welcomed new board leadership.

Thanks to the support of our community partners and dear supporters, we ended 2023 financially strong - with a reinvigorated commitment to fulfill our mission to advance education, awareness, treatment, and research to improve the quality of life for all people impacted by brain injury. We stand ready to continue to serve with inspiration, competence, and care in 2024.

Below is a summary of our 2023 accomplishments.
