Background
Prior to 1999, Virginia offered little to survivors of brain injury after medical rehabilitation. With the increased incidence of brain injury, the need for long term community based services became evident to both local individuals and state officials. In 1999, the Virginia Department of Rehabilitative Services responded by funding the state's first clubhouse for survivors of brain injury, The Mill House.  Located in Richmond, The Mill House offered an innovative approach to community reintegration where survivors could claim ownership over rehabilitation and actively pursue long term goals.  The Mill House, operating under the nonprofit name Community Futures Foundation (CFF), not only succeeded in bringing needed services to Richmond, but also obtained grant funding to open a second clubhouse and to provide case management services. In 2005, CFF founded The Denbigh House in Newport News, now serving survivors on the Middle Peninsula and Peninsula.  In 2007, CFF began serving survivors of brain injury with case management services in the Metro Richmond area. In 2012, Community Futures Foundation's name was changed to Community Brain Injury Services to better reflect and inform our communities of the vital services we provide to survivors of brain injury.
 
Currently, all of our services are recognized by the Commonwealth of Virginia as core safety net services for persons with brain injury.   All of our services also received the highest level of accreditation from CARF, the national accreditation body for community rehabilitation programs.
CEO Statement
Brain injury is the leading cause of death and disabiltiy in the United States, yet is commonly known as the "silent disability" due to the lack of community awareness of its far reaching impacts on our communities.  A brain injury is an absolutely devastating injury to both the survivor and their family members.  Moderate to severe brain injury often leaves a person with a lifelong disability, unable to return to work, regain their independence and more fully rejoin their community.
 
Community Brain Injury Services, founded in 1999, is a non-profit organization that has been developed to fill an enormous void in our community, the lack of community based services specifically designed to deal with the unique challenges of brain injury.  In both of our main services areas, Metro Richmond and the Peninsula area in Tidewater, Community Brain Injury Services is the only provider of dedicated community based brain injury services (It is estimated that over 21,000 people in the Metro Richmond area are disabled as the result of brain injury).
 
All of our services are considered core safety net services by the Commonwealth of Virginia for survivors of brain injury.   Through our services we empower survivors of brain injury to be active participants in their rehabilitation.  Additionally, Community Brain Injury Services continues to educate, advocate, and collaborate with the communities that we serve for both the individual and macro level needs of the brain injury community.
 
It is our challenge to serve as many people as we possibly can each year, because we know how many more are in desperate need of our services.

CEO/ED/Board Comments
As the sole community based provider of brain injury services in both of our primary service areas, referrals for both our clubhouse and case management services remain high and our waiting lists for all of our services remain one of our biggest challenges to address.

Organization Comments
Given the limited funding streams available to serve survivors of brain injury in our community, it is an ongoing challenge to ensure that we have sustainable funding for our services.  Community Brain Injury Services works with a variety of governmental, private, and community funding partners to ensure that our services remain viable options for as many survivors as possible.  We are very honored by everyone who supports our important work and mission through their financial support.
