Since 1947, Paralyzed Veterans of America
has been on a mission to change lives and build brighter futures for o
ur 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
They returned to a grateful nation, but also to a world with few solutions to the challenges they faced. They made a decision not just to live, but to live with dignity as contributors to society. They created Paralyzed Veterans of America, an organization dedicated to veterans service, medical research
and civil rights
for people with disabilities.
Today, the work continues to create an America where all veterans and people with disabilities, and their families, have everything they need to live full and productive lives.
Paralyzed Veterans national officers
and our 34 chapters
represent thousands of veterans in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
