The Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey (the Alliance) is a statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to improving quality of life after brain injury, and offering the promise of a better tomorrow.

Since being founded in 1981 by a small group of concerned parents of children who had sustained brain injury, we’ve grown to become the primary source of information, education, advocacy, support, and hope for people with brain injury and their families in New Jersey.  Today, our dedicated staff, board, volunteers, donors, and community partners provide service to 10,000 New Jersey residents each year.

Our mission is to support and advocate for individuals affected by brain injury and raise public awareness through education and prevention.

Our vision is a world where all individuals with brain injury and their caregivers maximize their quality of life, the consequences of all unavoidable brain injuries are minimized and all preventable brain injuries are prevented.
