Resource Facilitation is our corner stone service and is a partnership that helps people and communities choose, get and keep information, services and supports to make informed choices and meet their goals.  The collaborative process involves participants (individuals with brain injury and their personal support systems) working in partnership with facilitators (individuals who provide assistance in navigating systems) to achieve agreed upon goals.  You are always welcome to visit our in-house Resource Library
