For more than 70 years, Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) has been on a mission to change lives and build brighter futures for our seriously injured heroes—to empower these brave men and women with what they need to achieve the things they fought for: freedom and independence.
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 will use 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 that
maximize the independence of our members.
Today, the PVA continues the work to create an America where all veterans and people with disabilities, and their families, have everything they need to live full and productive lives.
The PVA North Central Chapter PVA was established July 26, 1964 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and serves the states of South Dakota, North Dakota, Southwest Minnesota, and portions of Montana and Wyoming.
