HELPING PEOPLE WITH ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY LIVE TO THEIR FULL POTENTIAL.png
 

Our Beginning

The Kamloops Brain Injury Association (KBIA) was formed in 1986 by a group of concerned individuals aware of the considerable need to provide support to persons with brain injury and their families, and to increase awareness about brain injury within the community at large. The society incorporated in 1990 as The Kamloops Head Injury Association, and in 1996 changed its name to the Kamloops Brain Injury Association. Behind these simple facts lie many changed and often devastated lives.
