It is a non-profit clearinghouse founded and operated by brain injury
activists since 1985. We receive no federal funding and little to no other
funding what so ever. Basically, we get by on the seat of our pants. In
the most basic sense we are enriched by sharing the collective wisdom
that we have accumulated over the years. Sharing it freely the way
that we have over the decades since our founding has helped level the playing
field and facilitated communications between individuals and families and
the professionals serving them. Our most consistent funding derives from
law firms seeking to be of service to you. So if you are looking for lawyers

Thanks to the creative leadership and innovative

that TBI is now officially
recognized as a separate and distinct disability, as such it has been
accorded legal standing in
state law. Under the direction and vision of our founder, Constance
Miller, managing director of
She initiated and lead the effort to
put traumatic brain injury on the legislative agenda. Under the skillful
advocacy of Washington’s
brain injury survivors their families and friends, the Washington State
Legislature passed a bill
supporting those living with the effects of traumatic brain injury.
We drafted and introduced House Bill 2055 under the sponsorship
of Rep. Dennis Flannigan.
Surprisingly, a competing bill, Senate Bill 5024. was introduced at
the same time by Sen. Ken Jacobsen.
After careful analysis and comparison we concluded that the "other"
bill would do
little to advance the cause of TBI.
This turn of events caused us to re-double
of efforts with legislators. We were able to
convinced them to merge the best of each bill and in the end the resulting

would create a Washington
Traumatic Brain Injury Strategic Partnership Advisory Council that
would report to the Governor,
the Legislature, and the Secretary of the Department of Social and
Health Services (DSHS).
HB2055 created a Traumatic Brain
Injury Account, funded by an additional $2 fee on all
traffic infractions, DSHS was granted authorization to spend monies
from the fund on information
and services related to a public awareness campaign, support groups,
or information and referral
It is estimated that this fund would receive
$1.5 million every year. Such funds were to be
made available to community-based organizations through a request-for-proposal
The stated legislative intent was to provide
services to meet needs of TBI survivors.
The bill, HB2055 directed the council to consider the merits of developing
a statewide TBI registry.
