The Oceanside Brain Injury Society & Resource Network (OBISNet) is proud to announce its official designation as a not-for-profit society.
Although still in its infant stages, OBISNet is two years in the making, hosting regular Breakfast Club meet ’n’ greets 10 a.m. every Friday at the Wembley Mall White Spot.
The organization’s mission is to assist survivors of acquired and traumatic brain injury and their families with informational support, guidance and help with reintegration into society.
Another top priorities is their campaign for Brain Injury Awareness and Prevention: striving toward eliminating the social stigma surrounding this type of injury and ways to prevent it happening to you or someone you love. A brain injury can happen to anyone at any time.
The Oceanside Brain Injury Society will hold its first major fundraiser in October, watch The News for more details to come on the fall fair style event.
