The Brain Injury Services Fredericksburg Community Services Program is a client-directed, community-based program that is designed to meet the unique needs of the survivors living in a diverse and largely rural area. The purpose of the Community Services program is to provide innovative services and supports that can increase the success of individuals with a brain injury by accessing programs such as, volunteering opportunities, health/wellness activities, community events, workshops, and other integrated activities in their communities. The Fredericksburg Community Services Program provides group activities 3 days per week (Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday) that offer members the opportunity to practice and develop important life skills, social skills and vocational skills in a supportive environment. The goal of the program is to provide services so that members can achieve their individual goals and, when possible, to transition to meaningful productive activities in their community. In addition, this program has a staff member who is available to work with members on an individual basis, 2 days per week (Tuesday and Friday) in their community with the purpose of providing the additional support needed for them to achieve their goals.
