History of BIS SWVA

Fran and Greg Rooker established Brain Injury Services of SWVA, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, in 2000 with financial support from The Jason Foundation. The Rookers lost their 11-year-old son, Jason, to an acquired brain injury. They experienced first hand the devastating effects of the lack of services for brain injury survivors in Southwest Virginia.

While providing information, referral, funding, and advocacy through The Jason Foundation, it became apparent to the Rookers that the families they were encountering desperately needed professional coordination of services to maximize recovery opportunities.
