Our Mission

Jodi House empowers brain injury survivors to not merely survive, but thrive. Whether due to an auto accident, sports injury, stroke, tumor, or one of the countless other causes, chances are you, or someone you know, has been affected by a brain injury.

A brain injury can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime. Whether due to an auto accident, sports injury, stroke, tumor, or one of the countless other causes, chances are you, or someone you know, has been affected by a brain injury.

During the chaotic and confusing days, weeks, or months in the ER, hospital, or inpatient rehabilitation, it is extremely difficult to comprehend what life with a brain injury will be like. Yet, once the medical professionals have finished their lifesaving work, survivors and their families are usually left to cope on their own with the life-changing and, often, lifelong emotional, behavioral, and social effects of the injury.

That’s where Jodi House steps in. Jodi House helps brain injury survivors reclaim their lives, and helps families and caregivers find solutions, resources, and support.

Jodi House is located in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara, situated in a historic, 1875 Victorian farmhouse. Our address is: 625 Chapala Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101 (between Cota and Ortega Streets).

Since its humble beginnings, Jodi House has become a vibrant activity center and the main source of support, referrals and information for the local brain injury community. Jodi House offers a Day Program and a Caregiver Support Program, both designed to assist brain injury survivors, their families, and caregivers in developing coping strategies for living with the lingering effects of a brain injury through participation in a supportive and accepting community setting.
