Family Support & Advocacy Network
BIAF is undertaking to create a plan to develop Florida's first TBI Family to Family Support and Advocacy Network. Implementation of this plan is expected to begin in July 2011.
The TBI Family to Family Support and Advocacy Network will consist of Survivors, Family Members and Caregivers who are able to speak to community leaders, policy makers and others about the needs of Survivors and their families.
Preliminary goals for this network include:
As this plan develops BIAF will research family programs and best practice models used by both TBI and other disability groups and will use data gathered in 2010 via BIAF’s Caregiver Needs Assessment and 2005’s TBI Statewide Strategic Plan.
If you are interested in volunteering to participate in this ground-breaking work, please call our Helpline at 800-992-3442 or email email@example.com.
