Community Head Injury Resource Services of Toronto (CHIRS), formerly known as Ashby House, started in 1978 as the first community-based brain injury rehabilitation program in North America. From its origins as a transitional group home, CHIRS has evolved into a multi-service agency that provides a broad range of supports to a clientele with diverse and complex needs.

 

CHIRS is a registered not-for-profit charitable organization primarily funded by the Central Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) and by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. CHIRS has earned the highest level of accreditation awarded by Accreditation Canada since 1997. To earn this award the agency is assessed against national acquired brain injury standards. CHIRS was also selected as one of 14 programs in the world included in the ‘Casebook of Exemplary Evidence-Informed Programs that Foster Community Participation after ABI’ – making CHIRS a recognized centre of excellence worldwide.
