CHIRS exists to improve the quality of life for persons living with the effects of acquired brain injury and to be leading-edge in the provision of evidence-based community and client-centred services in the field of Acquired Brian Injury. CHIRS, formerly known as Ashby House, started in 1978 as the first community-based brain injury rehabilitation program in North America. From its origins as a transitional group home, CHIRS has evolved into a multi-service agency that provides a broad range of supports to those with diverse and complex needs. Residential services offer supported living opportunities ranging from 24-hour supervision to supported independent living. Ashby Community Support Services (ACSS) provides case management and cognitive behavioural supports to those living in the community. A broad range of clinical programs and groups are offered in person and remotely. Through CHIRS Adult Day Services, which is comprised of an adult day program (CHIRS Club) and community programs, CHIRS is provides productive and meaningful activities for all participants throughout the community and at our drop-in centre. CHIRS has become a leading provider of services for complex individuals with behavioural, addictions, and mental health issues in addition to having a brain injury.
