I frequent the HBIA Clubhouse...it is a warm and welcoming place with people who understand the challenges of this, most often, invisible and misunderstood condition...The people within, both facilitators and ABI friends...continue to help me through some very dark times. In an MVA...my life was changed forever. Still often feeling a victim, they help me work through it all and remind me that I am a survivor. Thank you to so many.

Glee Club

Glee Club is open to individuals living with the effects of brain injury. A fun and engaging Club started by HBIA participants. Join us on Tuesdays to listen to a variety of music selected by you and your peers. Sing along and dance (optional). This is a great time to spend time among your peers!

ASL Club

ASL Club is open to individuals living with the effects of brain injury. ASL Club is survivor led and serves as an educational opportunity for individuals to learn the basics of American Sign Language in a relaxed environment.

It’s a place where you all get together. It gives us time to express ourselves. Whereas at home, there is no communication. When you come here, you can expand your mind. Everyone benefits in a different way. It’s a community, and a social setting in society where we can be together.
