CVC 2013

CVC 2013 is quickly coming to a close.  With all that goes on at this time of year, it is very possible that you have planned to pledge and just not gotten around to it yet.  If you need any information with regard to pledging for this year’s campaign, contact your ambassador or me and we will get you the information you need.  Here is one more charity spotlight:

Crossroads to Brain Injury Recovery, Inc.

Like the 1.7 million Americans who are affected by brain injury each year, this client sustained a brain injury that affects him physically and cognitively. “I had trouble speaking,” he says. “I had to talk completely slowly. I had to keep reminding myself how to talk slowly.”

This client currently lives with his mother, and it is his dream to live on his own. The client became aware of Crossroads only recently even though he sustained his brain injury as a small child. He had been struggling most of his life with the effects of his injury. Now, with the help of his case manager, he has been setting his own goals and moving toward the independence he desires. Together, the client and Crossroads have worked on life skills such as cooking, using assistive technology, managing money, housekeeping, and taking medications accurately.

The client is now enrolled in classes to obtain his GED. He enjoys frequent trips to the library to borrow books and use the computer. He likes being able to take care of himself, but he doesn’t know where he will be in five years. “Probably driving,” he says. “That’s one of my goals is to learn to drive, and probably living on my own.”

Crossroads to Brain Injury Recovery will continue to partner, support and guide the client as he works at increasing his independence. “They are doing a great job!” he says.
