Support for Adults & Resource Management
The Brain Injury Alliance of Washington is privileged to offer FREE Adult Resource Management services to individuals living with Brain Injury and their supports to residents of Washington State. We provide resource management services to individuals 18 years or older, who need assistance in reaching their goals. This can include, but is not limited to: assistance with housing, qualifying community programs, assistance with applications, qualifying for DSHS programs, social security, accessing a therapeutic animal, locating appropriate medical care, advocacy, legal resources, finding community and increasing quality of life, personal goals, and much more.
Adult Resource Management (ARM) is client-focused and client-centered. True to BIAWA's mission and goals, we pride ourselves on community partnerships. Therefore, participants of ARM services are required to regularly engage and participate with their Resource Manager while working through their goals.
How do I know if Adult Resource Management is appropriate for me?
- You have a short term goal that requires assistance beyond a referral or obtaining a resource
- You would benefit from step-by-step assistance and guidance
- You have multiple goals
- You need in-person support and/or advocacy
- You need a brain injury specialist on your team to guide you and assist you with your specific goal(s)
Adult Resource Management may not be for everyone, and for those who need assistance, but are not looking for case management, please phone our Resource Line. We would be happy to assist you.
