TBI Assisted Living Home

The construction of BrainSpace complete! Thank you to our funders, the City of Shoreline, and our project partners for supporting PROVAIL through five years of planning and development.

On Thursday, January 7th, PROVAIL broke ground on the new traumatic brain injury (TBI) assisted living home in Shoreline, Washington.

The state-of-the-art facility will house low-income adult TBI survivors who are not able to live independently. In addition to 24-hour support services, residents will also have access to specialized therapy and nursing services as needed. We’ve designed the space to be as home-like as possible with a living room, fireplace, warm finishes, lots of natural light, outdoor patios, and garden areas. The facility was designed by Environmental Works Design Center and was built by Kirtley Cole Associates.

There are currently only three other community residential facilities in Western Washington that specialize in meeting the needs of TBI survivors. That leaves some young adult survivors living in nursing homes without similar-age peers or in other settings where they aren’t receiving the services they need. This new 12-bedroom facility will meet those needs for low-income adults in our community, including veterans.

This $3 million dollar project has been funded by the Washington State Department of Commerce Housing Trust Fund, the King County Housing and Community Development Program, the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines Affordable Housing Program and the Washington State Legislature.

Thank you to our funders, the City of Shoreline, and our project partners for supporting PROVAIL through five years of planning and development. We also thank everyone who came to the ground-breaking event. Together, we’re working to ensure that people with disabilities get the highest quality residential supports, in a way that honors self-directed choice and community-based integration.

For those interested in the home for themselves or a loved one, criteria for residents are as follows; individuals with a TBI, are eligible for COPES, and meet Medicaid requirements. For further information about the program, contact Amal Grabinski, Director of Community Living, by email at amalg@provail.org or call (206) 826-1040.
