Loudoun Headway Project
The end of June brought the conclusion of our Loudoun Headway Project. We would like to thank everyone who supported us as we made headway in Loudoun County over the past year, especially The Claude Moore Charitable Foundation who provided us with a wonderful home in Leesburg. We’d also like to thank the Community Foundation for Loudoun/Northern Fauquier, Leesburg Daybreak Rotary Foundation, Inc., and the many dedicated professionals and volunteers who supported our efforts in Loudoun County.
For the time being, we will continue to serve residents of Loudoun County through our virtual programs – just as we do all stroke and brain trauma survivors during this pandemic. We are so appreciative of the warm welcome we received from the local community and look forward to determining what the future will bring once we can safely resume in-person services. For more information about SCC programs available in Loudoun County, please contact Suzanne Coyle, Executive Director at .

In addition, Ms. Coyle earned an Executive Certificate in Nonprofit Management from Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy.
