The Mission of the Brain Injury Association of Missouri is to reduce the incidence of brain injury; to promote acceptance, independence, and productivity of persons with brain injury; and to support their families.
Founded in 1982 by a group of parents, the Brain Injury Association of Missouri (BIA-MO) is a community-based organization serving persons with brain injury, their families, caregivers, professionals, and the general public throughout Missouri.
With the involvement of volunteers, persons with brain injury, family members, community-based service professionals, government entities, funders, communty leaders and others, BIA-MO helps create a better future for persons with brain injury and families. We also strive to prevent brain injuries.
The Brain Injury Association of Missouri is a 501(C)3 not-for-profit organization. We rely on annual individual donations, foundation grants, corporate sponsorships, memberships, and special events, such as Bowling for Brain Injury and Giving Tuesday. Of every dollar donated, 89 percent directly supports programs for persons with brain injury, family members, professionals who provide care, and the community.
