Jodi House is named for Jodi Wustman, a 19-year-old college student who suffered a brain injury after being hit by a drunk driver.

Whether due to an accident, sports injury, stroke, tumor, or one of countless other causes, chances are, most people know, or have been affected by, a traumatic brain injury.

Jodi House helps brain injury survivors reclaim their lives and helps their families and caregivers find solutions, resources and support.
