"Making a Splash in the Neuro Community!"
California BrainWaves Committees
Healing Arts Committee
The Healing Arts Committee hosts workshops as fundraisers, arranges art and decor at our locations, establishes art therapy at our venues, celebrates art expression across our social media platforms, hosts art activities at our events, ensures art supplies are always stocked at our facilities, and more.
This committee focuses on our sustainable architectural design, facility decor, sensory integration designing, landscaping, disaster relief engineering, safety and accessibility engineering, security, and more!
Without funding, our Nonprofit won't move forward in solving today's (and the past's) problems that face our disabled community, such as stigma, isolation, and lack of research. Our Fundraising Committee is key in creating a permanent change in the society regarding brain and developmental disabilities. Not only do they fundraise, but these volunteers help de-stigmatize brain and developmental disabilities in their marketing and efforts.
We PROUDLY support our LGBTQIAA+ community. We have a committee to ensure safety, success, and significant support in our community by way of our programs, events, fundraisers, and support groups.
With the help of Celebrities via endorsements, donations, tagging us on social media, mentioning California BrainWaves in public, doing interviews with us, making guest appearances, performing at our fundraisers or locations or events, we can soar even higher.
The Children's Committee, fully composed of people who are 17 and under, developmentally, focuses on making sure their peers are being seen, heard and valued.
This committee ensures our franchises are run with a vast amount of diversity. The Diversity Committee works closely with HR to ensure our population of staff, residents, patients, clients, students, volunteers, etc is diversified. This committee also creates support in our community specifically around diversity issues. The Diversity Committee celebrates diversity in events, fundraisers, arts, culture, food, decor, etc. They also help educate our Board of Directors and staff on biases, especially in the medical arena to prevent medical discrimination.
Sex, Drug, Money Trafficking Committee
The Sex, Drug, Money Trafficking Committee exists to prevent tragedies from occurring with diligence, foresight, and specialized training.
Anyone who has ever been a Caregiver knows there simply hasn't been enough support since we split from living a tribal lifestyle as humans. And even then, we still lacked resources and scientific advances. The Caregiver's Committee is a tribe within California BrainWaves dedicated to ensuring support to Caregivers.
Engineering Design Team
Our Engineering Design Team will aid people with brain and developmental disabilities in the following areas: medical care, education, transportation, tech, accessibility equipment, toys, clothing, etc. For example, we hope to modify car seats for children with Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder; we would like to design a brain-disability-friendly amusement park; we hope to improve air transportation safety; we want to design eco sensory-friendly clothing; we wish to bring back nature's healing powers in a concrete jungle. These projects and inventions will fund California BrainWaves. We will also apply to research and engineering grants and share our research and models to advance society.
Our Legal Team will be independent contracts for pay, pro bono and/or sliding scale, each lawyer's choice. We are seeking the following Attorneys: Business, Civil Rights, Criminal, Employment, Family, Immigration, Nonprofit, Real Estate, Wills/Trusts/Estates.
Foster Care, Refugee, and Immigrant Families Committee
At 7H20, we will take in foster kids with brain and developmental disabilities. To go one step further, we will also provide for adults and seniors with brain and developmental disabilities who do not have families. Refugees with brain and developmental disabilities are also sheltered and welcomed onsite. This committee is a specialized team that welcomes, educates, stabilizes and supports this extremely vulnerable population.
Family Re-Entry Committee
Did you know? People with brain and developmental disabilities, including learning disabilities and mental illnesses, are funneled into for-profit jails and prisons at an alarming rate. At 7H20, we will dedicate rehabilitative housing to newly released and formerly incarcerated parents and children with brain and developmental disabilities, who will be reunited with their families on-site. Our rehab program is run by this committee.
Neurotypical Sibling Support Committee
We've learned that it is very important for the neurotypical siblings to receive care and support, ages birth to senior. This committee organizes and hosts social events, support groups and virtual support for neurotypical siblings.
