Our Program Offerings

Music Therapy

Music, being common to all cultures, enables people to feel a sense of belonging, develop their personal identity, and express themselves creatively. Our music therapist uses both musical and clinical interventions to help brain injury survivors improve, maintain, and restore an optimal state of well-being.

This program is hosted in-person on Mondays, and virtually on Thursdays, but is currently suspended until September. Stay tuned for details!

Creative Arts Program (CAP)

This therapeutic program offers clients the chance to explore the world of visual arts, learn to expand their creativity, and unleash their imagination. With an open-studio structure, participants are able to work on their own projects or receive guidance from our facilitator. No prior experience is neccessary and all supplies are provided.

CAP is a drop-in program that runs bi-weekly on Wednesday evenings from 3:15 until 5:00 pm.

Therapeutic Yoga

Relieve stress, build strength, and increase your flexibility. Our yoga program is intended to be enjoyed by people of all shapes, sizes, & abilities.

This is a drop-in program that occurs every Tuesday from 3:15 until 4:15 pm.

Walk Group

Enjoy some fresh air while exercising in a supportive environment alongside other brain injury survivors.

This is a drop-in program that takes place every Thursday morning from 10:00 am until 11:00 am.
