The Mountain States Chapter is one of thirty-three PVA Chapters across the United States. The PVA National Offices serve as a unified voice of advocacy for all members and chapters. It also serves as a repository of information for its members.
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 uses its 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 that maximize the independence of our members.
