A brief history of Pride Support Services

Pride Support Services, Inc. was established in 2002 by two amazing women, Michele Corrow and Kim Daniels. Some people in Vermont would call them, pioneers in the field of TBI. Their mission was to provide people who have suffered from a traumatic brain injury, and their families, with individualized supports beyond an acute rehabilitation facility or group residential setting. At the time, there were very few options after someone was discharged from a rehabilitation facility or a hospital to help them reintegrate into their own home community while relearning the skills needed to resume their lives. Pride Support Services, Inc. was started with very few service recipients located throughout Vermont. Today, they serve will over 50 individuals, but over the years have assisted many people to gain the skills needed to return to life as independently as possible. All of Pride's current services are provided in any part of the state from White River Junction north. Although, they have provided services to other areas and this is determined on a case-by-case basis. At this time, Pride Support Services, Inc. does not provide services exclusively to persons who have had a TBI. We support anyone who might need our assistance to deal with a myriad of challenges so that they can be supported in an individual manner in their own community or the community of their choice. Even though Pride continues to grow, we maintain the same basic philosophy to provide the best possible individualized services to people in need so that they can have a full and complete life and never lose sight of their hopes and dreams.
