The Mid-Atlantic Chapter
Thanks to our supporters, were are able to be “a supportive community for capable heroes.” Because of your support, we are able to provide our paralyzed veterans with quality care, sports and recreational activities, educations and career opportunities, and the public access they deserve.
The Mid-Atlantic Chapter of Paralyzed Veterans of America was founded by a band of service members who came home from World War II with spinal cord injuries. They returned to a grateful nation, but also to a world with few solutions to the new challenges they faced. They made a decision not just to live, but to live with dignity as contributing members of society. They created Paralyzed Veterans of America, an organization dedicated to veterans’ service, medical research, and civil rights for all people with disabilities.
Located in Chesterfield County, Virginia, the Paralyzed Veterans of America, Mid-Atlantic Chapter was officially formed in 1947 and is one of the six original co-founding chapters of the organization. With nearly a thousand members, the work continues today to create an America where all veterans and people with disabilities, and their families, have everything they need to live full and productive lives.
