Thank you for looking into Krempels Center as part of your healing process.

Krempels Center's mission is to improve the quality of life of people living with brain injury through evidence-based programming, shared experiences, and support in a welcoming community.

At Krempels Center, you can expect to find a warm and supportive community of members who understand your experience. In addition, devoted staff and compassionate interns and volunteers will help you along your journey. Krempels Center will provide you with a safe and caring environment while offering opportunities to work on your personal goals, find resources and valuable information, and create an invaluable connection with individuals who “get it."  

Who knows better what it’s like living with a brain injury than someone already living with a brain injury?  Our community offers many opportunities for members to support and advocate for one another as well as share strategies. This is a community that values each individual and can be a place of hope, joy and connections for you.

Krempels Center's vision is that brain injury survivors are included, empowered, and inspired to participate in their communities.


Krempels Center will resume in-person programming on Wednesdays only beginning Wednesday, July 7th. Virtual programming will continue to be offered on Mondays and Fridays through the summer.  After a 1 week break (Sep 6-10), in-person programming will be offered 3 days per week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.   

Important!  We will be requiring all on-campus participants to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.  You are required to send us proof of vaccination status as well as the signed “Assumption of Risk and Release of Liability Related to Covid-19" prior to returning to campus. For members who attend with a caregiver, an additional document “Covid-19 Vaccine Policy Agreement” must be signed by the member, family member, guardian, or agency responsible for assigning caregivers, assuring that any caregiver attending is also fully vaccinated. If you plan to return to on-campus programming, please send a copy of your vaccine documentation and the signed release to our Program Assistant Carli at ccaceres@krempelscenter.org or to:

"Krempels Center was just what I needed when I needed it most. I loved being accepted just the way I was while at the same time working towards maximizing my potential within my ability level... I greatly benefited from a supportive 'learn-by-doing' environment."
