The Brain Injury Association of New York State has a network of community-based chapters throughout New York State. Chapters provide an outlet for the brain injury community to gather and meet others going through similar circumstances in their local community. Chapters provide hope, information, personal growth opportunities, and advocacy for people with brain injury and their families and friends. BIANYS staff support these groups to strengthen their capabilities. Quite often, chapters meet monthly and often have guest speakers and, at times, organize recreational activities.

Presently, there are chapters on Long Island, New York City and Rochester. To learn more about a chapter in your community, please contact the Chapter contact listed below, or contact Margo Singer at 518-459-7911 or
