Celebrating 11 Years - Founded in 2004

BRIDGES is a Northern Kentucky Brain Injury Support Group established in April 2004 at the request of numerous brain injured survivors searching for support, education and resources. The acronym of BRIDGES means BRain Injury Demands Guidance Education and Support.

BRIDGES was incorporated in May 2008 as a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation to promote brain injury awareness education through community outreach and raising funds for the advocacy of brain injured survivors and their families. BRIDGES has a Board of Trustees and Directors to oversee its operation.
