Why teach our children to buckle up and wear helmets? Each year, over two million people in the United States are affected by brain injury. The statistics are startling and prove there is a desperate need for organizations like Opportunity Project.
Unfortunately, with ongoing wars overseas, since 9/11 more Americans return home with brain injury and nowhere to turn. An estimated 5.3 million Americans, a little more than 2% of the United States population, currently live with disabilities from brain injury.
