When our veterans return home after valiantly serving their country, they will need advocates to help them successfully transition into their new lives. Advocates to assist them in securing quality healthcare, timely access to their veterans’ benefits, and support in finding jobs and/or adaptable housing. For veterans who are suffering from spinal cord injuries as a result of their military service, their needs are even more complex.
For more than 65 years, Paralyzed Veterans of America (Paralyzed Veterans) has been dedicated to helping those who have served our country. From providing comprehensive assistance with VA benefits, to offering access to quality healthcare and a barrier-free America, to striving for a cure for paralysis and promoting adaptive sports and recreation, Paralyzed Veterans is dedicated to empowering our heroic veterans-and all people with disabilities-by providing tools to help them maximize the quality of their lives.
Veterans who live with spinal cord injuries face many physical and day-to-day challenges.The National Service Officers (NSOs) at Paralyzed Veterans of America help to meet thesechallenges and are highly trained in VA law, benefits and healthcare.All of these NSOs serving veterans are also veterans themselves, and many have some type of disability. As a result, they have a unique understanding of the concerns and challenges that impact paralyzed veterans and their families. Most importantly, these NSOs are able to offer the specialized attention and support these heroic men and women deserve, at no cost to the veteran.
