About The Head Trauma Support Project:
The Head Trauma Support Project, Inc. (HTSP) began in 1979 as families of adults with acquired brain injury (ABI) united to support one another throughout the journey. ABI may result from a traumatic brain injury (e.g., an insult to the brain by external physical force) or a nontraumatic brain injury (e.g., strokes, tumors, infectious diseases, etc.). At that time, no Sacramento area resources existed to help this population or their families adjust to life after an ABI.
Over the years, HTSP expanded to include all those living with ABI including adults with ABI, significant others, families and friends, caregivers, as well as medical and rehabilitation professionals. HTSP brings people together with a common goal of promoting a better understanding of living well after ABI, strengthening social networks, increasing life participation and enhancing quality of life. HTSP empowers individuals to improve their potential and lead fuller lives.
Through weekly group meetings, family members gain peer support while participating in a variety of social activities including group discussions. The family support groups are facilitated by licensed and credentialed professionals. Adults with ABI participate in supportive group activities that are facilitated by trained student and community volunteers.
HTSP provides free services to all those living with ABI in Sacramento, Placer, and surrounding areas including Yolo, El Dorado, and San Joaquin counties.
The HTSP Mission Statement:
To improve the quality of life for survivors of brain injury, and their families and caregivers in Sacramento County and surrounding counties.
Support the Head Trauma Support Project of Sacramento
HTSP is a non-profit organization, established in 1979, that brings people together with a common goal of promoting a better understanding of living well after an acquired brain injury. Our goals have included: 1) Strengthening social networks, 2) Increasing life participation, and 3) Enhancing quality of life for all those who are living with an acquired brain injury and their caregivers. HTSP offers educational information, helpful resources, supportive social groups, and regular community outings; all designed to foster independence and provide social opportunities for ABI survivors, loved ones, and caregivers.
As of October 2022, we offer support groups t twice a month free of charge to all participants. In addition, we identified and brought in very strong facilitators to lead our groups, re-established our strong core of college student volunteers from local colleges, and created our new DeDe Days-Ward college scholarship. There are significant costs in leading these groups along with the expenses involved in using our facility.
Your support will help us to continue our support groups for brain injury survivors, their caregivers, and family members. We would like to invite you to donate the HTSP. You can designate your donation to go to one of the specific groups, or simply donate to the HTSP general fund.
