Headstrong’s mission is to help children and young adults build great lives after brain injury. As science and medicine advance our knowledge of neuroplasticity and recovery, we know that community engagement and meaningful activities are game-changers after injury. HeadStrong’s Outreach, Social Outings, and Training programs provide vital community connections and education to support the entire family. We collaborate with Harborview, Seattle Children’s, BIAWA, Outdoors for All, Camp Korey, BEST, University of Puget Sound and others to create broad community supports.
Thank You from HeadStrong!
Headstrong is a 501.c.3 non-profit organization that serves children, teens, and young adults living with brain injury and their families. We are based in King County with a second chapter in Tacoma.
You are an unpaid “family” caregiver if . . .
You provide care or support for an adult or child with a chronic or condition that prevents self-care.
You may even be a family member, friend, or neighbor.
Your family member needs support with activities of daily living.
You are not “paid” to support your family member. (Yet for those who are able to receive some financial support, it does not mean they are compensated adequately for their help. They may even have to give up earning an income in order to provide the care needed.
Even though you have made a decision to help your spouse, parent, child, or other loved one, we understand it can take a lot of time, effort and work. You may have become a caregiver suddenly and without warning, or perhaps your role evolved slowly over time. It can even be mentally and emotionally challenging as you balance their needs with your own.
We acknowledge sacrifices you have made. You matter: Clearly, your loved ones need you. And your daily work saves our State billions of dollars every year.
You deserve an occasional break to help you in your important role. You deserve RESPITE.
