Who We Are

The Brain Injury Alliance of Washington (BIAWA) is a small, nonprofit organization that has exhibited the power to do great things. The BIAWA was originally founded in 1982 as the Washington State Head Injury Foundation by family members determined to create a system of support for all Washingtonians affected by Brain Injury.

Over the years, the BIAWA has become a statewide resource for individuals with brain injury, managing the Washington State Brain Injury Resource Center and offering intensive resource management in most counties. The BIAWA is proud to serve 10,000+ individuals a year through free classes, support groups, information and referral services, and social opportunities. The BIAWA is committed to responding to the needs of our community, and we are honored to be a part of peoples’ journeys through Brain Injury.
