Paralyzed Veterans of America

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.

PVA will use that expertise to be the leading advocate for:
-Quality health care for their members,
-Research and education addressing spinal cord injury and dysfunction,
-Benefits available as a result of their members’ military service,
-Civil rights and opportunities that maximize the independence of their members.
To enable PVA to continue to honor this commitment, they 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 PVA to achieve its mission.
