Founded in 1982 by a group of parents, the Brain Injury Association of Missouri (BIA-MO) works with support groups, volunteers, and service providers throughout the state. BIA-MO is a community based organization serving persons with brain injury, their families, caregivers, physicians, therapists, case managers and others throughout the state of Missouri.
Services and programs are carried out by hundreds of volunteers who serve as members of the board of directors, speakers, recreation coordinators, fund raisers and office assistants.
Many volunteers are survivors of brain injury, family members and health and service providers.
The Brain Injury Association of Missouri, Inc. is funded through personal and professional memberships as well as contributions from individuals, businesses, corporations and foundations.
