Why We Are Here

In 1982, a group of family members and health professionals came together to form the Alamo Head Injury Association (AHIA) of San Antonio. The AHIA was born from a sense of helplessness and mutual frustration experienced by families and survivors in their search for appropriate support.

Prior to 1982, Texas lacked both public and private agencies dedicated to providing emotional support, advice, guidance, or other help for those who are suddenly faced with both the immediate and potentially long term effects of head injury.

Our members are survivors of brain injury, their family members and caregivers, and professionals in the San Antonio area.

We face a tremendous challenge, but also have a tremendous opportunity.

AHIA Mission Statement:

“Improving the quality of life for survivors of head injury and their families”
