In 1984, a small group of families and providers came together to advocate for services for persons with brain injury and their families. Today, the Brain Injury Association of Minnesota it is celebrating our 27th year as the only statewide nonprofit dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for Minnesotans affected by brain injury. Over the decades, the Association has developed from an advocacy driven organization, to one that focuses on both advocacy and direct service. As a chartered affiliate of the Brain Injury Association of America, the Association enjoys a prominent standing among all national Brain Injury Associations.  Headquartered in Minneapolis, the Association serves people throughout Minnesota. The Association employs a professional staff of 44 and hundreds of volunteers work to further our mission to enhance the quality of life and bring the promise of a better tomorrow for all people affected by brain injury.
