We are Better Together!

On November 1st, 2020 Bridges officially merged with Brain Injury Alliance NKY.

Under BIANK's umbrella, Bridges will continue to serve the survivor community by offering monthly support groups and direct  involvement. As a joint operation, BIANK will strengthen initiatives and continue to provide outreach, resources, education, and prevention awareness. 

Our focus remains the same: To walk with brain injury survivors in their journey and provide hope by being a source of support.
