Association for the Rehabilitation of the Brain Injured (ARBI) is a community based non-profit organization providing rehabilitation and recreation based programming to individuals with moderate to severe acquired brain injury, including strokes.
In our Recreation based programming, known as the Community Integration Program (CIP), clients are assessed by one of our Recreation Therapists who will recommend activities that are meaningful to each individual and also related to their rehabilitation goals. These programs help clients improve their abilities through leisure skills. Brain injury survivors who have undergone intensive rehabilitation apply their relearned skills in the group programs, which focus on music, communication, leisure, social and sensory abilities.
Learn how small successes can make a big difference.
Volunteers are trained to support individuals with severe acquired brain injuries. This is an ideal opportunity for anyone working from home, employed part-time, retired, semi-retired, with a flexible work schedule, or a student planning to enter medically related fields of study.
A variety of groups run throughout the week, and volunteers may choose the group based on its focus or by the time that best suits their schedule.
Please contact us for more information about the requirements of each group, as well as the availability of volunteer positions in each group.
Most activities are at 3412 Spruce Drive SW, however, some programs take place at various venues in the community
