Paralyzed Veterans of America, a congressionally chartered veterans service organization founded in 1946, has developed a unique expertise on a wide variety of issues involving the special needs of our members – veterans of the armed forces who have experienced spinal cord injury or dysfunction.
Southeastern is one of 34 Chapters of Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA). Our local Chapter was chartered in the State of Georgia in 1962. We are governed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors, comprised of ten (10) veteran members of our organization. We pride ourselves on being responsible stewards of the funds we receive aiding veterans, their families and non-veteran disabled persons living in the states of Alabama, Georgia, North and South Carolina, and Tennessee. Also, our members volunteer regularly to supports, visits and encourage fellows veterans at the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center, Spinal Cord Unit and other medical facilities. Funding members to attend events like the National Veterans Wheelchair Games and other Sports & Recreation activities.
PVA will use that expertise to be the leading advocate for:
- Quality health care for our members,
- Research and education addressing spinal cord injury and dysfunction,
- Benefits available as a result of our members’ military service,
- Civil rights and opportunities that maximize the independence of our members.
To enable Paralyzed Veterans to continue to honor this commitment, we must recruit and retain members who have the experience, energy, dedication, and passion necessary to manage the organization and ensure adequate resources to sustain the programs essential for Paralyzed Veterans of America to achieve its mission.
