The Community Based Services is a department of the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC). This program provides a range of community-based services to persons who have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI), including: case management, social/recreational programs, skills training via regionally-based head injury centers, respite, residential services/programs, and family support services.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Be a Massachusetts resident
  • Have sustained a documented traumatic brain injury
  • Exhibit impairments (physical, cognitive, and/or behavioral) primarily caused by a traumatic brain injury
