Welcome to Synapse House

Our mission is to Engage, Empower, Employ individuals affected by brain injury and stroke.

If your loved one is suffering from a traumatic brain injury, you already know how hard it can be for them…and for you.

There are so many unanswered questions -  

     “When will things get better?”

     “How much recovery is reasonable to expect?”

     “What can we do to make sure we give it our best effort?”

Here at Synapse House, a non-profit organization, our mission is to Engage, Empower and Employ individuals affected by brain injury and stroke.  We are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). Our program is carefully designed to provide every opportunity and consistent encouragement for the fullest recovery possible…in the shortest amount of time. We Engage individuals through productive and healing work during participation in our Clubhouse Day Program. 

Our “Flour to Empower” Bakery Training Program provides work readiness skills and real life training. For those with an open file with the Department of Rehabilitation Services, our Employment Program can work directly with your case manager for return to work goals. Please inquire.

We Empower individuals and families through innovative, effective programs that create community, provide practical solutions and build relationships.  

We address vocational goals so companies can Employ our Members, giving them access, independence and pride.
