About Us Improving the Lives of Brain Injury Survivors ENOCH TBI NONPROFIT Many of us initially met at a weekly support group as Traumatic and Acquired Brain Injury survivors and our caregivers, but these two hours a week of socialization were not enough to fill the empty hole of loneliness so many of our TBI/ABI survivors experience.There are too many days both caregivers and survivors spend on doctor appointments and therapy sessions. It became apparent that both our survivors and caregivers needed more socialization-type outings that did not just focus on brain injury. Thus, we began our Wednesday group get-togethers. This is a gathering strictly for fun and entertainment. We arrange activities based on normal everyday types of things such as bowling, playing billiards, eating lunch, and playing games at the park, watching movies, and playing miniature golf.Even our more physically challenged survivors have been able to enjoy participating in the physical aspect of the activities. It is so exciting to see our survivors’ faces light up when they are able to get the ball down the bowling lane and knock down those pins!Read More These Wednesday gatherings have been a great success, and we all look forward to this special day to socialize, relax, and enjoy “normal” everyday activities together as one big family. There is definitely an ongoing need and a desire for these types of activities for the TBI/ABI survivor because of the socialization it provides and the independence it allows them to enjoy.Many caregivers and survivors share the same worry about what will happen in the future. The Center would provide reassurance to both survivor and caregiver of a safe living environment that encourages independence and provides the socialization and activities that survivors so desperately need so they can live more meaningful lives. The success of this Wednesday group is a small beginning, but it confirms why The Enoch TBI Center is critical and will play an important role in their lives. 4 People Interested in Assisted Living 5 People Interested in Day Program Membership 1 Want to Volunteer?

Noreen Davis Treasurer My working career has spanned almost 39 years. My first job was with The Hartford Insurance Group in New York City, New York as a Personnel Assistant. During this time, I was offered a placement in the company’s all-expense-paid Work-Study Program through The College of Insurance, allowing me to earn my Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a minor in Insurance. Read More After graduation, I became a Personal Lines Underwriter in the New York office. Several years later, I transferred to Hartford, CT as a Senior Personal Lines Underwriter and continued in this position until I accepted a traveling position as a Team Leader for on-site Regional Office and Processing Center reviews for the purpose of determining the enforcement and accuracy of workflows, clerical/rating procedures, and offering suggestions for improvements through daily meetings and final written report to Regional Office and Home Office Department Management. My 14-year employment with The Hartford Insurance Group ended when my son was born. I relocated to the Sacramento, CA area and once my son was a full-time student, I returned to full-time employment completing a Certified Nursing Assistant program at The Homestead of Fair Oaks (a skilled nursing facility) where I worked for 2 years as a CNA, a Medical Ward Clerk, and finally, as an Administrative Assistant to the Director of Nurses. Following this, I began a career with the State of California as a Senior Worker’s Compensation Claims Adjuster for the State Compensation Insurance Fund in which I coordinated compensation, medical, and rehabilitation benefits for private companies on-the job injured workers. After 7 years, I accepted a position as a Retirement Program Specialist II with the state’s California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS). In this position, I performed complex analysis of community property claims and death benefit cases by interpreting and applying Retirement Law, legal opinions, court decisions, and departmental policies. In addition, I served as a technical and analytical resource to processing staff and Division Management. It was during this time my son was injured as a passenger in a car accident sustaining a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). When he suffered further setbacks due to his TBI, after 14 years with CalPERS, I retired from my full-time position. Because of family support, I was able to continue working 2 days a week with CalPERS as a retired Annuitant for another 1 and a half years. These days, my life is entirely devoted to my son’s care and well-being as he continues to live with me.
