If you are a veteran seeking support
Paralyzed and disabled veterans who are isolated in their homes during the Coronavirus
outbreak are suffering. Most have compromised immune systems and can’t get out for medical care or groceries; some can’t even be reached by their caregivers.
In the midst of this global pandemic, PVA is a front-line warrior for our nation’s most catastrophically injured veterans to ensure they have a hospital bed if they need it, protective gear for their caregivers, in-home care, and for many, food on the table. Our dedicated staff is responding 24/7 hundreds of times of day. We are going above and beyond to meet this critical need.
The crisis all Americans are dealing with is even worse for veterans in wheelchairs as a result of spinal cord injury or disease who can’t leave their homes. Every day they struggle with accessibility issues – and this national emergency has made things much more difficult. Our veterans stepped up to serve this nation and we must serve them at their extreme time of need. Your support ensures we can continue to serve.
