Side by Side is the only program in Georgia - and one of only three in the region - that offers brain-injured adults a pathway to self-sufficiency through a proven partnership approach. We are striving to expand our programs, services and infrastructure so that all Georgians who have suffered a brain injury will be able to regain self-sufficiency and enjoy rich and meaningful lives with their friends, peers, and loved ones.

The Atlanta Woman's Club, a philanthropic organization made up of women who work together to improve our local community, is extremely proud to host and sponsor One Big Night for LuRae, a roast and toast in honor of LuRae Ahrendt and in support of The Side by Side 2020 Initiative. Learn more at www.atlwc.org

About Side by Side 

People with brain injuries come from every walk of life: mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, coworkers, friends, neighbors, business executives, athletes, returning veterans, first responders ... But virtually all face huge unknowns when they come home from the hospital:  Will I need nonstop caregiving? Will I be able to work again?  Will I have friends and colleagues?  Will I live a productive life?  For the hundreds of adults in Georgia's brain injury community, Side by Side provides comforting answers to these life-altering questions.
