Community Foundation of Castlegar and District
The Community Foundation of Castlegar & District is excited to present the West Kootenay Brain Injury Association with a 2017 Community Foundation Grant in the amount of $1,500.00. This grant will go directly towards the association’s Castlegar Outreach Peer Groups, which provides peer support, individual support, life skills development, along with educational and recreational workshops to aid community members suffering the effects of a brain injury. Individuals with an acquired brain injury often require significant special supports to regain functioning, to cope with lifestyle changes and the losses that can accompany brain injury (financial, social, housing, behavioral, etc.) WKBIA programs and services are open to anybody, of any age, with an acquired brain injury, along with their families, throughout the west Kootenay region. Currently, the WKBIA provides service to 126 clients and families within west Kootenay communities. Funds received through the CFCD Community Foundation Grant will go towards rental of a kitchen space for cooking classes, covering the costs of 4 local workshops, plus purchase of supplies for various craft, outdoor, and cooking projects. The CFCD is honored to support the West Kootenay Brain Injury Association and looks forward to seeing more of their successes this year.
