Reduction of Services in Light of Staff Furlough

Unless otherwise noted, for assistance on the following, please call 1-800-955-2443 or email Info@BIAColorado.org.
Resource Navigation - Navigators will continue to be available M-F, from 8:30 am - 4 pm. Please anticipate increased wait times to reach or hear back from a resource navigator during this time.
Self-Management/Skill Building - This program will be temporarily paused until early August. Survivors that are participating in this program will be contacted by their Brain Injury Advisor to answer questions and discuss any survivor-specific details about how to resume services.
