The Jimmy Simpson Foundation is a 501c3 organization that was founded by Carol Simpson after her husband, Jimmy, suffered an anoxic brain injury as a result from a fall out of a hospital bed after surgery. While searching for long term placement for Jimmy, it was difficult to find an environment that fostered individuality as well as provided a safe home environment. As with many non-profit organizations, the family saw a need within the brain injury community and stepped up to meet that need.
In July 1998 the Jimmy Simpson Foundation opened its first long term care program for traumatic brain injury, Safehaven. In 2000 we added the North Georgia Support Group for brain injured individuals and their families. Information on both programs are provided by clicking on the appropriate link.
