SEPVA Lineage


The Southeastern Paralyzed Veterans of America, Inc. (SEPVA), was organized October 1, 1961. as the Georgia-Carolina Chapter of Paralyzed Veterans of America, Inc. The Chapter was chartered Georgia-Carolina Paralyzed Veterans Association, Inc. as a chartered member of the Paralyzed Veterans of America, on August 11, 1971. Then, on August 1, 1992 the Chapter was re-charted as the Southeastern Paralyzed Veterans Association, Inc. With the name change and rechartering of the chapter, our mission now provides for a five state area: Alabama, Tennessee,  North and South Carolina, and Georgia. The SEPVA is the largest Chapter of PVA and we currently and forever represent our membership and the physically challenged citizens with our area of responsibility.
