Founded in 2004 - Supporting Brain Injured Survivors and their Families for 12 Years

BRIDGES is a Northern Kentucky Brain Injury Support Group established in April 2004 at the request of numerous brain injured survivors and their families searching for support, education, resources and advocacy.

The acronym of BRIDGES means BRain Injury Demands Guidance Education and Support.

BRIDGES partners with organizations, such as Brain Injury Alliance of Kentucky (BIAK), to raise brain injury awareness and expand our support resources. Visit About Us and Helmet Program for other groups.
