ABI Services & News

PRIDE is now certified by BIA-MA to offer Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) services. If you or a loved one need individual support and community habilitation, chore services, supported employment, pre-vocational services, day services, adult companionship and/or respite services, PRIDE can help. Call us at 508-823-7134 for details.

PRIDE attended the Annual Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts (BIA-MA) Conference in March, where we highlighted services offered at PRIDE. This year marks the 35th anniversary of the statewide conference, which provides a place to gather and discuss the challenges faced by the brain injury community. Following a morning keynote speaker, over 700 conference participants attended more than 25 workshops and networked with over 40 exhibitors. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) were offered in more than a dozen fields.

Advocacy

PRIDE is working closely in partnership  with the Association of Developmental Disabilities Providers (ADDP)  to meet and discuss disability concerns for families and providers. ADDP sponsored “A Day at The State House Luncheon” on January 26th with Massachusetts local representatives. During this luncheon we helped to make our needs known for the FY’17. Goals included increased funding for families of Massachusetts, promoting work and self-sufficiency, the state’s implementation of the Autism Omnibus Act of 2014 and implementation of the Massachusetts Brain Injury Commission Report. Our community asked legislators to include the ADDP FY’17 priorities in their recommendation to the Chair of Ways and Means.
