The North Okanagan/Shuswap Brain Injury Society (NOSBIS) has received a grant of $33,371 to help it more effectively carry out services for its clients.
The grant has been used for support worker funding to assist with the society’s high case load and ensure continued quality service to NOSBIS clients.
“We have had nothing but positive feedback in terms of our new support worker,” NOSBIS executive director Robyn Coatta said. “Our clientele and NOSBIS are extremely grateful and thankful for the B.C. government funding, through the Brain Injury Alliance. It is because of this critical grant funding that NOSBIS is able to continue to provide a high quality of service.”
NOSBIS provides support and advocacy services to people with acquired brain injury and their families.
“This funding ensures the organization is able to maintain and expand the services it provides to clients, which makes a positive impact on our communities,” Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo said.
