Friends & Corporate Friends
Leading Through Philanthropy

Our “Friends” program was created to help support the programs we offer that serve individuals living with brain and/or spinal cord injuries throughout Louisiana.

Through their collective commitment to philanthropy and giving back, our "Friends" help raise awareness for people with brain and spinal cord injuries, and inspire others to make a difference in the lives of these individuals.

Please join the movement, and see how together, BIALA and our “Friends” can put our passion to work to help improve the quality of life for individuals impacted by brain and/or spinal cord injuries.
