The Brain Energy Support Team (BEST) is pleased to announce the expansion of Our BEST Space in University Place, Washington. While BEST remains in the same building as before, we have relocated to the ground floor in suite 1H. This facility continues to offer a safe, comfortable and fun environment for brain injury survivors and their families; however, our new expanded space boasts ample meeting, activity and event spaces along with increased accessibility.

BEST Director and Support Group Coach Jeff Hartson loves the fresh vision and mission of the Space.

“This gives us an opportunity to do the things we already do better and more comfortably. It also gives us greater visibility in the community as a resource and a good place to learn new things, meet with friends, and grow. We can do Moving On easier, have support group meetings even while other things are happening. It’s a good move for us.”

Diane Rasch, BEST Gratitude Specialist appreciates the new space for special events and activities.

“To me, it allows us more space so we can do special things like we did with the Valentine Gratitude Party. It was so much fun to have people doing different activities in different areas and not feel crowded,”says Rasch.
