PVA North Central Chapter ByLaws

About the North Central Chapter

The 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. Most of PVA’s members use wheelchairs for daily living which creates special needs that we try to address. North Central Chapter PVA works to maximize the quality of life for its members and all people with SCI/D as a leading advocate for health care, SCI/D research and education, veterans’ benefits and rights, sports programs, disability rights including accessibility and the removal of architectural barriers. PVA is the only Congressionally chartered veterans organization dedicated solely to serving the needs of SCI/D veterans.

The North Central Chapter PVA raises funds in support of our programs and services that the Chapter offers to our members, veterans, and other individuals with disabilities in the community.
The North Central Chapter PVA's programs are funded through 100% tax-deductible contributions from generous American's like you. We receive no government funding. If you would like to support the North Central Chapter P.V.A., please call toll free: (800) 505-4782 or donate online today!

Through contributions like yours, your gift helps assure that quality programs & services will continue to be available to veterans.
