Headway Homes Fund

The Ontario Brain Injury Association (OBIA), in partnership with the Headway Homes Fund at the Niagara Community Foundation, distributes $5,000.00 annually from a fund created by Headway Homes (Niagara) Inc. to enhance the lives of people in a slow-to-recover state following a brain injury.

The conditions of the fund are as follows: The person is an individual medically diagnosed as slow-to-recover (STR) following brain injury and either the individual and/or their family caregiver require specific financial assistance. STR refers to those individuals who do not show an extended period of fast-paced natural recovery soon after injury. Changes in their physical and/or cognitive recovery develop slowly and with minimal changes from day-to-day and month-to-month. It includes two functional patterns: inconsistently responsive and hard-to-place multi-need.

The first priority will be to assist individuals from the Niagara area, then the rest of Ontario.  Applications begin each year on April 1 and are reviewed on a first come-first served basis.
