The Brain Injury Association was founded by families who live with the consequences of brain injury and understand the challenges first-hand. Our top priority is to support survivors and families who do not know where to turn across the Commonwealth.

Without the support of donors, sponsors, members and volunteers, our work would not be possible. Your generosity ensures BIA-MA can continue to pursue a world where all preventable brain injuries are prevented, all unpreventable brain injuries are minimized, and all individuals who have experienced a brain injury enjoy a maximum quality of life, through our four pillars: prevention, education, advocacy, and support.
