2018 Awards: "It takes a village"

The 2018 Brain Injury and Resource Facilitation Regional Conferences will again provide the setting to honor outstanding achievements and commitment to those impacted by brain injury.

Building on last year, we added two new awards the Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor Award and the Consumer Award. Recipients for these two new awards along with those for the Service Provider Award and Employer Award, will be honored at each regional conference location across the State . We feel these awardees exemplify what it takes to be a part of the  "village." both in their community and statewide.

Please join us during lunch as we recognize these 2018 awardees for their outstanding achievements enhancing employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
