The Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA), 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 utilizes 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 which maximize the independence of our members; promoting an accessible, barrier-free environment; and accessible design in architecture and construction industries.
