According to 11Alive, over 65,000 people in Georgia sustain a brain injury annually. Once treated, most individuals return home to a dramatically different life. Enter the Side by Side Brain Injury Clubhouse, Inc. At the nonresidential clubhouse, volunteer members who have endured a traumatic brain injury use their skills to help keep the clubhouse running by assisting with administrative, kitchen, or maintenance tasks. This model ensures that people with mental disabilities have a place to support each other, find and keep jobs, and live out their lives at home instead of in institutions.
