Community Living Connection

In addition to brain injury education, goals include building dignity, functional skills, and wellness awareness in survivors of brain injuries.
Groups usually meet once or twice per week for 1 to 2.5 hours and are offered on a regular schedule throughout the year.

"CLiC is very interesting and allows for interaction and support from other brain injury survivors."
"They are a group of friends I now have. Folks I can count on. CLiC made more of a difference in my attitude and feelings than medications or other counselors. I was in a nasty black hole before CLiC."
"So wonderful to see I am not alone.”
CLiC is designed for survivors of brain injury and caregivers 18 years of age or older. Participants should have access and ability to use webcams and the internet independently or with a caregiver. Participants who reside in Virginia are given priority though others are welcome to apply.
