SABIS began as a grassroots organization in 1985, formed to support survivors of brain injury. Since then, SABIS has established its role as the coordinator of essential supports and services for brain injury survivors and their support networks. SABIS seeks to connect program participants with income support, mental health support, food, housing, legal supports, rehabilitation programs and transportation. SABIS also provides opportunities for connection through group programs, which cover a number of different areas such as wellness, recreation, and peer support. Funding is limited and SABIS relies on fundraising to support roughly 25% of its overhead costs. The impact of COVID has resulted in fewer donations and lack of opportunity to fundraise through venues that SABIS would typically rely on. This has created a large deficit in operating costs, and, as such, SABIS is seeking to bolster its financial health to continue serving over 200 brain injury survivors. Every donation helps.
SABIS’ purpose is to make life easier for brain injury survivors and those who support them. SABIS walks alongside brain injury survivors to ensure they can access the resources they need to move from surviving to thriving in their community. SABIS connects individuals to supports related to a spectrum of needs, including (but not limited to): housing, income, wellness, mental health, physical health, rehabilitation, legal, transportation, and caregiver support.
SABIS offers 1:1 case management and groups to brain injury survivors and their supports.
You can support SABIS by donating any amount, or offering to volunteer with our fundraising endeavors. Every effort counts, and will help SABIS to continue to walk alongside the over the over 200 brain injury survivors we exist to support.
