The Hickok Center

Founded 1989

Mission:
The mission of the Hickok Center is to provide a safe and supportive environment that encourages people with brain injuries and other neurological challenges to design and direct their own life journey. The Hickok Center for Brain Injury strongly embraces member-driven supports that enable each member to become as independent and self-sufficient as possible. Members of our Rochester and Newark centers are provided with a nurturing environment in which they are able to develop skills or learn compensatory strategies through performing many of the functions of operating the organization. Members select the skills that they wish to develop and are then given the freedom to learn at their own pace.  

HISTORY:
The Hickok Center for Brain Injury is a non-profit 501(3)(c) organization first incorporated in Rochester, New York in 1989. In April 1996 we began accepting participants (often referred to as members, though we are not a membership organization, but rather consider ourselves a family). In 2006, we opened a satellite program in Newark to provide services to survivors of brain injuries in Wayne County and, purchased 114 South Union Street in Rochester, after years of leasing different spaces around town to accommodate our growing numbers!

WHO WE SERVE/SUPPORT: 
The Hickok Center supports people with brain injuries and other neurological challenges, ages 18+
, by providing them with supports related to developing independent living skills, compensatory strategies and pre-vocational as well as vocational skills. Participants are medically stable, independent in self care and medication administration and present no danger to themselves or others. Please visit the Hickok Centers Web site for additional Information
