Services for Adults Diagnosed With Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)
Goodwill provides much-needed services for adults diagnosed with acquired brain injury (ABI). In a 4 year period, there were more than 124,500 brain injury emergency room visits in Maryland. However, there are very few programs currently available that respond specifically to the needs of adults living with the consequences of ABI. Goodwill services, designed and delivered by professional staff is available at no cost for residents in both Frederick and Carroll Counties, the program offers vocational and cognitive training to improve quality of life, functioning in families and relationships, as well as learning new skills to re-enter the work force.
Paricipants will experience training in the following:
- Improving executive functioning
- time management
- follow-through with task

From day one staff will works with participants during a discovery phases to identify career interest and job possibilities. Our work will continue until a job has been obtained in the community.The ABI Vocational Program is offered in partnership with Maryland’s Department of Rehabilitative Services (DORS). This program fits nicely with other funded programs through DORS, as many of the participants participate in similar workshops.
