Our programs allow those with brain injuries to regain the support necessary to recover to the extent that they are able.
Though each of our members is experiencing different levels of function regarding vision, speech, balance, and cognition, they are all able to benefit a variety of our programs, and contribute to our organization by acting as a source of support and strength for each other.
Through our Day Program, we work with our members to encourage their physical, cognitive and behavioral recovery. Classes such as Tai Chi, yoga and dance help promote physical balance and strength while classes such as brain work out, memory, and communication skills promote cognitive function and memory improvement. Through one on one help and support groups, we are able to aid our members in their emotional recovery. Each day consists of a different schedule and members are free to come and go as they please, choosing whichever classes and activities they wish to participate in. Our program model gives our participants the freedom and independence that they are often missing in other aspects of their lives. The encouragement that members receive from their peers, class instructors and staff members provides them with the self-confidence and motivation needed to continually work to improve their abilities.
At Jodi House, survivors are considered members, not clients or patients. Membership offers survivors consistent, ongoing support that is available for as long as the member needs or desires. Opportunities in the Day Program can enhance quality of life and overall independence. Participation also benefits families and caregivers by providing a safe, supportive environment for loved ones during the day. Membership provides invaluable respite, resulting in better care and healthier relationships.

Immersion Services Program
Jodi House collaborates with the California State Department of Rehabilitation to provide pre-vocational training to brain injury survivors who wish to return to the workforce. Participants learn how to build a personal profile, write a resume, effectively interview and search for jobs or volunteer opportunities online. Our staff is trained to teach the skills necessary to go back to work while also having extensive experience with brain injury.
