Examples of Program Success  We manage an extensive wait list of survivors as we are considered to be one of the most innovative organizations in the nation that is focused exclusively on providing complete housing and wellness solutions to survivors of brain injury.

SLI Brain Injury Wellness Center - Research Programs

Conventional thinking related to brain injury has been that neurological improvement to the brain will plateau after a certain period of time. Research has proven this assumption wrong and is showing how the brain can recover function for many years after an injury.  
SLI collaborates with leading academic and clinical professionals who work directly with residents and Wellness Center program participants to research the effectiveness of long-term fitness programs for brain injury.
Survivors of brain injury can and do continuously improve cognition and function in the right environment.
Budget  $65,000.00
Category  Housing, General/Other
Population Served People/Families with of People with Disabilities People/Families with of People with Physical Disabilities Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent
Program Short-Term Success  Measurable improvements in mobility, independence and quality of life.
Program Long-Term Success  Documented results of research studies will prove that recovery and rehabilitation of skills and abilities can be achieved even long after the initial injury.
Program Success Monitored By  Interviews with participants, and documented test results will be used to evaluate our programs and make appropriate adjustments to insure success.
Examples of Program Success  One of the first studies undertaken was to measure how far participants were able to walk without assistance at the beginning of the program, and again at the end of the 6-week program. For some individuals the beginning score was 0 feet, as they were wheelchair bound. Being able to walk a few feet by the end was considered to be an enormous success for certain individuals, as it showed the possibilities for the future and provides motivation to continue the program.

SLI Brain Injury Wellness Center- Fitness Program

The SLI Brain Injury Wellness Center is an independent brain injury rehabilitation and research center.  The Center partners with individuals, groups and communities to create evidence supported, person centered opportunities for brain individuals to relearn many skills lost due to brain injury that are needed to integrate back into the community.  The physical fitness program plays an important role in the brain injury rehabilitation process.  For example, regular physical activity helps improve balance and coordination, reduces reliance on assistive devices, and enhances abilities to perform everyday activities. 
 
Budget  $70,000.00

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

SLI acts as a management agent for four separate residential communities for individuals with brain injury. Those communities report financial information as separate entities. As such there are very few program costs seen in the SLI financial data which makes the administrative expense a high percentage of overall costs. Once all affiliated financials are rolled up the Administrative costs of all entities is approximately 25%. Please contact our organization with any questions and we will be happy to explain the financial information.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
