What is Service Coordination?
The Crumley House Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center has received a grant from the Tennessee Department of Health/Traumatic Brain Injury Program to provide services to individuals with brain injuries and their family members in 9 Northeast TN counties. Service Coordination is designed to bridge the gap in services to individuals with brain injuries. The Service Coordinator evaluates the needs of each individual and identifies appropriate resources within the community. Services include assistance with applying for Social Security Benefits, TennCare and insurance issues, and referral to appropriate housing.

In addition, Brain Injury Services Coordination will assist in the following areas:
- Providing information and referral
