Program Specialist - COTA or CTRS

Krempels Center

Be part of a team making a significant impact on the quality of life of people living with acquired brain injury. Established in 2000, Krempels Center is an innovative, evidence-based community program for brain injury survivors. Our vision: Brain injury survivors are included, empowered, and inspired to participate in their communities. Services are provided at the Community Campus in Portsmouth, NH and online.

Krempels Center’s services are not funded through a traditional insurance model.  Thus, success is not measured by productivity, but by evidence-based interventions, program outcomes, and solicited feedback from our clients—who we call members.  Member self-determination, the ability to address members’ real-life needs over time and in a non-medical milieu, and a welcoming and supportive community, are hallmarks of our program.
