Hedy Chandler, Chair of the Toronto ABI Network, recently celebrated 30 years as Executive Director of Community Head Injury Resources Services (CHIRS).
The milestone was marked at a gathering of former associates, current clients and friends and families.
CHIRS (formerly Ashby House) was established in 1978 as the first community-based brain injury rehabilitation program in North America. Under Hedy’s leadership it has grown from a transitional group home to a multi-service agency that provides a wide range of supports for individuals with brain injury. A not-for-profit, CHIRS is funded by Central LHIN and the MOHLTC.
