Part of what the Brain Injury Resource Center of Wisconsin  strives for is to be a resource for those who have been affected by brain injury.  Our staff can assist you with locating the information and resources that you might need in your community and else where. 


The B.I.R.D.  is not intended to be all-inclusive, however we feel that some of the information you will find here might give you a good start toward getting the information you are looking for. If you can’t find what you are looking for, don’t hesitate to call our office at 262-770-4882 or email us at admin@bircofwi.org or visit us at 511 North Grand Ave, Waukesha, WI 53186 any TUE-WED-or THU from 1 p until 5 p 


Remember, we are your partners when it comes to learning, discovering, and managing a situation that can be filled with challenges and obstacles.
