Our History

Since 1982, the Brain Injury Alliance of Washington (BIAWA) has grown substantially, making gainful strides towards offering a complete, robust set of services and resources for individuals living with Brain Injury across Washington State. We are dedicated to empowering brain injury survivors and their families to transition from hospital to home and from home to community through involvement, resources, education, and advocacy.

Our Mission

Our mission is to increase public awareness, support, and hope for those affected by brain injury through education, assistance and advocacy. Our vision is a world where brain injury is prevented, and every person already affected by its impact benefits from resources that maximize his/her quality of life.
