What We Do

Whether it’s a Paralyzed Veterans of America national service officer who helps a veteran secure benefits that have been denied or the Paralyzed Veterans’ vocational rehabilitation counselor who helps a veteran get back to work, everyone throughout the organization is on a mission to help veterans.

For example:

  • We fight for quality VA health care and decent benefits for all veterans.
  • We help our seriously wounded heroes get back into life through adaptive sports. 
  • We advocate for a barrier-free America for all people with disabilities.
  • We help veterans with disabilities get a fair shot at the American Dream, a good job at a good company. 
  • We invest in the development of new treatments and cures for spinal cord injury/dysfunction.
  • With your generous support, we provide our services free of charge for all veterans with disabilities and their families.

If you’d like to get a better feel for paralyzed veterans, its people, our leaders, the challenges we routinely face and try to overcome, and opportunities to work for our organization, you will find the information in this section of our website.
