How we serve
BIAF is Florida’s only statewide, non-profit organization dedicated to individuals who have survived a brain injury and their families. Founded in 1985 by the mother of a young man who sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) from a motor vehicle crash, BIAF’s mission is to “improve the quality of life for all persons with brain injury and their families by creating a better future through brain injury awareness, prevention, research, education, support services and advocacy.”
BIAF has several offices located throughout Florida, where Resource Coordinators are available to communicate by phone and in person to assist the TBI survivor and family member. Resource Coordinators answer the TBI Toll Free Helpline (800.992.3442) and provide ongoing, proactive, phone and in person support to the TBI family in the hospital, at home and in the community.
Resource Coordinators are available to help families from the time the injury occurs throughout the various phases of recovery, and are experts in national, statewide and local resources necessary to live stable and productive lives. They connect families to the right resources and ensure that the resources are responsive and accessible to meet the needs of the individual.
