Community Reviews

Rating: 5 stars  

A family member was in a very serious auto accident, and sustained a traumatic brain injury. She was only 21 at the time, and had short-term memory loss. Pam Bryan (BIAT Executive Director) is a long time friend of ours, and she suggested we contact a person at the State of Tennessee who could help obtain vocational training. My cousin is now on the waiting list to begin the training as soon as a slot opens up. No one else had suggested this, and we are very appreciative of the referral.

This charity is located in Tennessee, a state where there are little to no services for individuals with disabilities. This charity is one of only a few available to provide support and services to individuals with a tramatic barin injury and their families. This agency also provides needed information regarding brain injuries to not only families but also to professionals. This a a valuable organization and does an excellent job of supporting individuals with a TBI.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would provide additional funding so that they can serve more people and provide additional services.
