About The Chapter

The Colonial Chapter of the Paralyzed Veterans of America is dedicated to improving the quality of life for Veterans with paralysis due to spinal cord injury or disease and to the protection of their civil rights.
 
We are committed to assisting paralyzed veterans by advocating for access to VA health care and barrier-free access to the community.
 
Our goal is to ensure the health and well-being of our Members and all paralyzed Veterans through education, information and referral, medical research, and physical, psychological, and recreational therapy.
