Paralyzed veterans have many resources available to them, whether they need help with accessibility, mobility, housing options, caregiver resources, employment opportunities or medical resources. Knowing where to look or who to call isn’t always easy. Below are some resources for you to consider.
Paralyzed Veterans of America – 10 years ago, PVA launched its vocational rehabilitation and employment program, Paving Access for Veterans Employment (PAVE) with offices now located in VA medical centers in Tampa, Richmond, San Antonio, Chicago, Minneapolis and Long Beach. Operation PAVE serves veterans nationwide using a hybrid, integrated approach to assist veterans and transitioning service members who face significant barriers to employment, as well as their spouses and caregivers.
Vets First – Vets First is a program of United Spinal Association that assists veterans and their eligible family members in obtaining the benefits they are entitled to, deserve and need.
The Wounded Warrior Project – Wounded Warrior Project provides free programs and services focused on the physical, mental and long-term financial well being of injured veterans, and their families and caregivers.
Mobility Works – Mobility Works has helped thousands of veterans regain their independence with a new vehicle. They help obtain the requirement and procedure information from the VA and other programs that offer assistance. For service-connected veterans, the Veterans Administration recently increased its one-time Automobile and Special Adaptive Equipment Grant Program to $20,235 (effective October 1, 2016).
United Spinal Association – Wheelchair donation resources are available on the USA website. Groups like Chariots of Hope collect donated wheelchairs and Whirlwind Wheelchair International will help anyone who needs one to obtain a wheelchair.
