OUR INCREDIBLE MIND
Our Incredible Mind (OIM), a former 510(c)(3) non-profit from September 14, 2014 to December 31, 2021, is the brain-injured community's access to:
- Fellowship & Meetings
- Activities & Resources
OIM is similar to what Alcoholics Anonymous was in the 1930s and still is today. There are traumatic brain injured individuals (TBI) and acquired brain injured individuals (ABI) that have found a way to accept, improve or recover from their injuries, however some struggle and some ultimately do not. We want to shine a light and give hope to those who want it.
