Our Logo

In 2017, the Brain Injury Society celebrated its 25th year anniversary of providing support to brain injured individuals and their family members. To celebrate this millstone, the Brain Injury Society has introduced a new logo as our society has branched off into additional areas involving housing programs.

The importance of the tree
