Founded in 1961, WETA is the flagship public broadcasting station in Washington, D.C.
WETA’s mission is to produce and broadcast programs of intellectual integrity and cultural merit
that recognize viewers’ and listeners’ intelligence, curiosity and interest in the world around
them. WETA is a major national producer for PBS, producing shows such as PBS NewsHour;
Washington Week; and Ken Burns’s series The Civil War and Vietnam. WETA is also deeply
committed to developing high-quality national websites about education, the brain, and mental
health, including BrainLine. BrainLine is an authoritative national website about preventing,
treating, and living with TBI or PTSD. BrainLine seeks to serve anyone living with the effects of
TBI or PTSD — especially service members and veterans — along with their families,
caregivers, and the professionals who work with them.

How We Helped
In 2014, Brainline Military, a service of BrainLine.org (brainlinemilitary.org) received $25,000 to provide military-specific information and resources on traumatic brain injury to veterans, active duty service members, and their support networks. Through video, webcasts, articles, personal stories, research briefs, and current news, those whose lives have been affected by TBI can learn more about brain injury symptoms and treatment, rehabilitation, and family issues associated with TBI care and recovery. To advance their support services, Infinite Hero granted $50,000 in 2019 to fund a new treatment Hub on BrainLine.org. This new hub will provide up-to-date information about the best and most innovative treatments for brain injury and PTSD. The Treatment Hub will offer a practical, reliable guide to finding treatment for TBI and PTSD: what works, why it works, what the treatment experience is like, and where to find help, especially cost-free or low-cost help.
