Citing an increasing need for services for people with brain injury throughout Berkshire County, Berkshire County Arc will offer a new brain injury day program providing new opportunities for cognitive wellness.

It's called Nu-Opps and it will offer a broad range of therapeutic and clinical services. An open house will be held on Thursday, January 24, from 10 A.M. to Noon at 133 Quarry Hill Road in Lee. Visitors will be able to meet participants and staff, hear directly about their experiences, and see this state-of-the-art facility first-hand.

The person-centered program has been designed to meet the specific and unique needs of people with brain injury, and includes both formal and informal work on cognitive and memory skills, fitness, and health.

Nu-Opps allows opportunities to engage in artistic and creative expression through in-house programming and partnerships with various community organizations, including the Williamstown Theatre Festival. In addition to working on their own individualized programs, attendees can choose from a wide variety of social and leisure activities, and take part in individual or group volunteer projects.

Berkshire County Arc is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization providing a broad range of community-based services to 800 individuals with developmental disabilities, brain injuries and autism throughout Berkshire and Hampden Counties in Massachusetts.
