Our veterans are our heroes for life. After serving our country, serious injury shouldn't stop them from living the full, rewarding lives they deserve. At Paralyzed Veterans of America, we fight for better health care and benefits, aid in the search for a truly satisfying career, and provide the path to adventure through adaptive sports. What's more, we are committed to ongoing care by educating clinicians about spinal cord injury, and we're deeply invested in the future a cure for paralysis.
For more than 67 years, Paralyzed Veterans of America has been on a mission to change lives and build brighter futures for our seriously injured heroes to empower these brave men and women with what they need to achieve the things they fought for: freedom and independence. The organization was founded by a band of service members who came home from World War II with a spinal cord injury.
